Genuine SURE FOOT Equine MEDIUM Pads are color-coded with a darker purple DuraFlex top stamped with the official SURE FOOT logo and are brighter violet colored foam on the other side.

This MEDIUM Pad is very springy and is preferred by most people when they stand on SURE FOOT Equine pads. The spring is great for horses that tend to be a bit flat in their movement or are ready for a more challenging experience.
Generally, the MEDIUM Pads would be introduced after the horse has been on HARD or FIRM Pads. The spring can be somewhat off-putting for horses that have not been on SURE FOOT pads previously. However, once the horse has been on a more stable pad this is a great choice to challenge your horse’s balance a bit more. Mix the MEDIUM Pad in with other SURE FOOT Equine pads to offer a wide variety of experiences for your horse.
Pads are suitable for use on any surface with horses that are shod, barefoot, and/or wearing boots. Pads will show wear over time. Nicks, tears, and cuts are considered normal wear and tear and do not limit the effects of the pads in any way.

*When using the pads in a cold environment (below 40°F or 4° C) use the un-coated surface. The DuraFlex surface stiffens slightly in cold temperatures and may crack. This type of blemish does not affect the function or performance of the pad, simply the look.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the SURE FOOT instructional video before starting this program with your horse. If there is any medical issues please consult your veterinarian before beginning SURE FOOT to be sure this program is right for your horse.
They are made of as much environmentally friendly material as possible, designed and tested by Wendy Murdoch, carry the official SURE FOOT Logo and are assembled in the State of Maine, USA.
This pad provides a surface with more give and spring than the Firm pad, and is more dynamic. It may aid in creating movement with more impulsion and cadence.
Each Medium pad has two workable surfaces—a diffusion surface and a direct response surface.
Can be used with horses of any size, weight or breed. Variation in the pads density provides different degrees of firmness each providing a different experience for the horse.
Durability: The Official SURE FOOT pads have been designed and tested to hold up under the demands of use with horses in any environment. While they are not impervious to damage (tears and cuts) they will continue to service the horse even is somewhat damaged by the horse’s hooves. Therefore the benefits of the SURE FOOT program can be offered to the average horse owner for (in many cases) the cost of one shoeing. Offering the horse and horse owner a long-term use to aid in improvement of overall health.
Warranted against delamination of the DuraFlex coating and/or pad layers.
Stackable: SURE FOOT pads can be combined to stack layers generally two high but in instance three pads high. Stacking allows the person to give the horse an experience that matches the habit patterns in the body. Horses will not stand on stacked pads unless they wish to, you cannot force this on the horse as they will slip the pads to be lower if so desired. However, stacking allows the horse to experience limb differential and in many cases is beneficial to establishing a more normal, balanced posture and movement.
Pads can be use to benefit the horse pre-exercise, post-exercise, during a training session to improve and enhance performance, recovery from injury while stall bound or in limited movement, reset proprioceptors to reestablish normal patterns of movement, calming for any breed horse in any discipline, improve overall well being of horse and owner, improve relationship between horse and owner as the owner is recognized by the horse as the one who brought the comfort.
