柯蒂斯燒傷，法新社 - 我
Not many years ago, a trip to Mexico and Columbia with the IFA (International Farrier Academy) revealed the harsh reality of horse taxis across South America. Garrett Ford and I saw how these horses are exposed to elements on a daily basis that the majority of our horses will never set foot against. With very little farrier education to be had, both the horses and their families whose livelihoods depend on them were suffering.
I believe the purpose of possessing knowledge is to share it. Because of this mutual belief, Garrett and I were inspired to seek out and develop a shoe to help. We felt we had the knowledge to offer these horses, their families and many in similar situations a feasible solution. That solution turned out to become theEasyShoe Flex..
坦誠的是，Garrett和我對這款鞋的期望是（因為缺乏更好的描述性詞語）尤比。我們的目標是創建一個具有釘子的綜合鞋，這些鞋子可能需要最小的培訓或財務來利用成功。這個目標導致了很長的期望列表。要開始，我們需要Flexto effectively absorb concussion and withstand daily exposure to formidable surfaces. We needed the Flex to be as simple as possible to apply while also having the capacity for multiple resets. In addition to offering the structural support of a metal shoe, we also wanted theFlexto provide the forgiving therapeutics of composite material. All of these requirements were essential – and to add to the list of non-negotiables, we needed to create it in such a way that we could offer them at an affordable price.
For anyone less inspired than Garrett and me, this project might have been deemed impossible from the start and ultimately abandoned. But, Garrett’s perseverance and drive to provide the best product possible helped us to face each trial as a valuable opportunity to go back to the drawing table. The insights we gained from taking the time to get it right ultimately allowed us to create a better product than we imagined. Three years after we started, theEasyShoe Flex.已準備好分銷。
With this in mind, it’s easier to understand that there’s more to the shoe than meets the eye. Below you’ll find an outline of what I refer to as four core “Flex Features” that I hope will leave you more educated and more capable of using the shoe to its full potential. Speaking from experience, the knowledge you’ll acquire from the utilization of this shoe will not only broaden your horizons as an effective farrier but as a horseman.
- Smooth Transitions:TheEasyShoe Flex.Open Heelmost closely resembles a traditional metal shoe and has a become a natural transitional shoe for farriers to gravitate towards as they begin into the world of alternative shoeing. Not only is it transitional from the viewpoint of user education, but theEasyShoe Flex.也用作馬匹的過渡鞋。我們看到這款鞋成功地在廣泛的案例中使用，其中馬需要交叉鞋作為傳統鞋帶和治療劑之間的臨時。
- 他們是雜種：TheEasyShoe Flex.is a marriage between a traditional metal nail on shoe and a glue on composite shoe. Most notably, if you were to compare theEasyShoe Flex.to previous products and designs the first thing you would notice is the availability of an open heel version. The majority of shoes of similar design were only able to be offered as heart bars. Because theEasyShoe Flex.offers a spring steel core, we are able to offer the shoe in a traditional open heel that makes it more compatible for many horses. This option works phenomenally for horses who benefit from natural frog pressure and hoof capsule function. If you examine the design, other hybrid features you’ll notice are its wide web, clear nail slots for easy visualization and distinct tread for traction.
- 白天的話 - 多樣性：在選擇各種鞋子時 - 這在最易上講的是頭部的釘子。Open heel,心髒酒吧,full heart bar,light, toe clip, side clip…the options list is a long one. While not shaped with a hammer, theEasyShoe Flex.已成功使用各種英語和西方學科，耐力馬，安裝的單位和蹤跡馬。隨著鞋子在表演舞台上的成功，值得注意的另一點是積極影響Flex在需要治療的馬中 - 例如回收層層患者。你真的可以在應用這些鞋子的應用中創造性，因為你有這麼多風格可供選擇以滿足馬的需求。我特別喜歡擁有的功能之一是腳趾或側麵夾。完成後，夾子通過穩定鞋來緩解指甲上的壓力非常有效。如果我覺得馬需要它們，我可以用它們，如果不是它們很容易刪除。這個小功能，結合所有的設計優勢EasyShoe Flex.技術可以是一匹馬的遊戲更衣室。
- 重置，重用，重複：取決於馬，EasyShoe Flex.can have as many as three resets in its life span. To save its integrity, a tip I like to share is using a punch to back out your nails during resets. This avoids any unnecessary damage to the shoe and& helps to maintain healthy nail holes.
