Why Megasus?

WE LOVE HORSES AND CARE ABOUT THEIR HEALTH.

For the well-being of our horses

WITHOUT IRON OR NAILS! BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. THE HOOVES ARE THE BASIS FOR A HORSE'S LONG AND HEALTHY LIFE. THAT'S WHY WE'RE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION.

We've been researching the horse's hoof for over 20 years. Megasus Horserunners are the result of these studies. We are committed to more movement on healthy legs and hooves. Your horse should enjoy movement and have fun with our state-of-the-art hoof protection, which allows all natural hoof movements - and without chaffing or twisting. Our top priority will always be the health and well-being of the horses. Because we love horses.

Over 50% of insured horses
die due to leg and hoof problems.

From an idea to a finished product.

I AM AN ACTIVIST FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS AND A PASSIONATE INVENTOR. MY MISSION IS THE END OF THE IRON AGE FOR HORSES.

While we continue developing our own footwear using state-of-the-art technology, our horses have been wearing immobile iron shoes for over 2000 years. Science has deemed horseshoes a ''necessary evil''. I read that sentence over 20 years ago. I have made it my mission to ''build'' our horses a comfortable sports shoe, transforming their movements into poetry.

Out of love for horses

WITH THE MEGASUS, I CAN PROTECT WHAT I LOVE MOST: MY DOMINIO AND HIS SENSITIVE HOOVES.

Could you imagine running in iron horseshoes? I can't. It would be like wearing a cast. When we fix the hooves with a rigid material like iron, the hoof can't compensate for uneven ground. The tendons and ligaments are immobilized. Hoof, leg, and joint problems are often the consequence. The Megasus Horserunners were therefore designed to allow for all natural hoof movements. In addition, they provide shock absorption and protect against vibrations and concussions.
