Clinically Proven

Fabric Cuff

The Sigafoos Series™ horseshoes are the only glue-on horseshoes that are clinically proven for treating most “sore feet” problems. The adhesive bonded, fabric cuff system has over 14 years of proven success in getting sore-footed horses back to work fast. These shoes incorporate a 1/4-inch thick, concaved rim pad to reduce concussive shock effects on the hoof and lower leg. These shoes incorporate a 1/4-inch thick, concaved, resilient rim pad to reduce concussive shock effects on the hoof and lower leg. These glue-on horseshoes can be used on horses with thin, cracked, broken, brittle or shelly hooves and those exhibiting a sensitivity to nails. These Sigafoos Series™ shoes are regularly & successfully used by the most competitive of horses in world class events in every discipline.

Fast & Simple Application

The Sigafoos Series I™ glue-on horseshoe system is fast & simple. It is fitted to the horse’s hoof just like a conventional horseshoe. Although the aluminum Series I™ shoe cannot be heated, it can be easily cold formed and shaped with conventional farrier tools.

The glue-on horseshoe is quickly and securely bonded to the hoof wall by saturating the fabric with the acrylic adhesive regularly used by farriers. The shoe is then stretch wrapped to the hoof for 8-10 minutes while the adhesive sets – there is no need to hold the hoof off the floor. Using the stretch wrap system, the horse is fully weight bearing immediately after the shoe is applied and full work can resume shortly after the horse is shod. We recommend the horse stay out of the mud & water for 8-12 hours to allow full adhesive cure.

Strong

The patented cuff attachment system uses acrylic adhesives to bond to the entire hoof wall safely generating twice the holding strength of nails. The strongest attachment possible – particularly with cracked, thin, broken, brittle and shelly feet – is achieved with no glue on the bottom of the hoof and no risk to hoof integrity. This is the best method to overcome your horse’s sensitivity to nails.

No Special Equipment Required

Other than conventional farrier tools, no special equipment is required. Everything needed to apply the Sigafoos Series™ glue-on horseshoes come conveniently packaged in the SoundHorse Technologies™ shoe kit.
