  • Common Problems


    Slipping and falling:

    SureFoot® Mat - Reduces slipping and falling

    SureFoot® Mat – Reduces slipping and falling

    Metal horse shoes and concrete surfaces are a lethal combination, particularly when wet.  SureFoot® Rubber Matting addresses this problem and greatly reduces the risk of horses slipping and falling causing injury.

    The SureFoot® Mat provides maximum traction and horse confidence, protecting not only the animal but riders and handlers.

     

     

    Spreading:

    Spreading from slippery concrete surfaces can be avoided

    Spreading from slippery concrete surfaces can be avoided

    Muscle, joint and ligament damage is not only painful for the animal but is often so severe that an animal is unlikely to recover or be able to race again.  This means that the animal either has to be re-housed or euthanased – a lose/lose situation for the animal and the owners both.

    The installation of the SureFoot® Mat reduces the risk spreading and the stress and financial losses that often accompany this type of injury.

     

    Hoof damage:

    Hoof damage is greatly reducedHard, stony and uneven surfaces put undue stress on horse hooves and can result in injury to the soft underside which may cause lameness.

    The SureFoot® Rubber Matting Range features matting solutions that provide an even, anti-slip surface which ensures that the risk of hoof damage is greatly reduced.

     

    Boggy areas:

    No more mud!

    No more mud!

    Mud! A growth pit for bacteria and a potential hazard for horses in terms of slipping and infection entering via open wounds.

    The Agri-Ground Cell® is the perfect boggy area solution.  It provides surface stabilisation, excellent drainage, improved traction and a stable ‘mud free’ surface for your horse to walk on.

     

     

    Loud ‘echoing’ walking surfaces:

    Noise Free Loading Ramps

    Loading Ramps – SureFoot® Mat

    The echoing sound produced when a horse walks on raised flooring can cause the horse to become skittish and unpredictable.  This is particularly prevalent when horses enter transportation via wooden loading ramps.

    To combat this, the SureFoot® Mat ‘dampens’ the loud echoing sound by means of a soft rubber walking platform.  The reduction in noise lessens animal anxiety and makes them calmer and easier to handle.

     

    Respiratory issues:

    Loose bedding harbours particles that can lead to respiratory issues

    Loose bedding harbours particles that can lead to respiratory issues

    Loose bedding is rampant with particles that when disturbed are easily inhaled by your horse.  Industry Trainers have attributed many equine respiratory infections to the dust and bacteria found in loose bedding that has inhaled by their horse.

    The SureFoot® Range of rubber matting products provide an easy, cost effective alternative to loose flooring that is dust free and horse friendly.

     

     

    Lameness:
