Comfort Pads Available in Two Thicknesses

Tucson, AZ, July 13, 2006 --( Due to the huge popularity of the Comfort Pad, EasyCare, Inc. will soon be making the product available in both the original ½″ thickness and now the new ¼″ thickness.  This version of the Comfort Pad will offer more options for riders and horse owners.  The new thickness will allow for more flexibility because the ¼″ pad can be used by itself, stacked together, or in combination with the ½″ thickness pads.  This will be a great way for horse owners to customize their pad and boot fitting.

Comfort Pads are an excellent way to provide extra protection and cushioning for a tender footed horse or for one recovering from various hoof ailments, including laminitis and navicular. The EVA foam pads often provide immediate relief for horses with severe hoof conditions. The pads are an excellent way to provide frog and sole support and increase circulation which may accelerate healing time.  

Multiple endurance riders have been testing them on endurance rides and have found that they are a great way to add a little extra cushioning and protection for horses that will be going over challenging terrain that is rocky and hard-packed.  Comfort Pads and EasyCare hoof boots are also an excellent way to help our equine friends go from being shod to being barefoot with minimal or no transition period.

Comfort Pads are sold by the pair. They can be trimmed easily with scissors and will fit into any of the EasyCare line of hoof boots which includes the Easyboot, Easyboot Epic, Easyboot Bare, EasySoaker, Boa Hoof Boot, Old Mac’s and Old Mac’s G2.  The pads can also be used to achieve a better fit for horses that may be between sizes in a boot.  Specify type of boot and size when ordering.
