Did you know that track rules prevent race horses in the United States from competing without hoof protection? If you believe the natural structure of the hoof allows for more expansion, contraction, and shock absorption without a rigid shoe, there are other hoof protection options.
The EasyShoe Compete has been specifically designed for track horses. This flexible, glue-on shoe acts as a protective covering without limiting the natural mechanism of the hoof. The EasyShoe Compete has won races in many states within the US and has been used in many countries outside of the US.

When finished well, it’s hard to tell the horse is wearing a shoe at all.
EasyCare has ten Arabian track horses currently racing at Arapahoe Park in Colorado. We find that these horses can train more and experience less leg issues when they’re wearing the EasyShoe Compete. Legs stay cool because the shoe provides more shock absorption and allows the hoof to work as nature intended.
Take a look at this Arabian race where the horses running in first and second place were both wearing the EasyShoe Compete.
Here are highlights from AA Rich Freddie's impressive debut at Arapahoe Park & Mile High Racing on Wednesday. The 3-year-old gray filly led a one-two of Colorado-breds bred and owned by Altitude Arabians of Durango, Colorado and trained by Russell Vicchrilli. Travis Wales rode AA Rich Freddie to the 10 1/4-length victory over stablemate AA Dbuster.

Remember, there are hoof protection options that allow for natural hoof mechanism.
