Horses can be kept in full work while they grow healthy hooves with the use of Sound Horse’s Sigafoos Series glue-on horseshoes. Many owners use the Series I Shoe prophylactically to avoid problems caused by nails.


Shock Reduction
The built-in quarter inch polyurethane rim pad on the Sound Horse glue-on horseshoe is unmatched in shock reduction capability.

The Sigafoos Series™ horseshoes are the only glue-on horseshoes that are clinically proven for treating most "sore feet" problems. The adhesive bonded, fabric cuff system has over 14 years of proven success in getting sore-footed horses back to work fast. These shoes incorporate a 1/4-inch thick, concaved rim pad to reduce concussive shock effects on the hoof and lower leg. Can be used on horses with thin, cracked, broken, brittle or shelly hooves and those exhibiting a sensitivity to nails.

The Sigafoos Series I™ glue-on horseshoe system is fast & simple. It is fitted to the horse’s hoof just like a conventional horseshoe. Although the aluminum Series I™ shoe cannot be heated, it can be easily cold formed and shaped with conventional farrier tools.

No Special Equipment Required
Other than conventional farrier tools, no special equipment is required. Everything needed to apply the Sigafoos Series™ glue-on horseshoes come conveniently packaged in the Sound Horse Technologies™ shoe kit.

Adhesive Instructions

The glue-on horseshoe is quickly and securely bonded to the hoof wall by saturating the fabric with the acrylic adhesive regularly used by farriers. The shoe is then stretch wrapped to the hoof for 8-10 minutes while the adhesive sets – there is no need to hold the hoof off the floor. Using the stretch wrap system, the horse is fully weight bearing immediately after the shoe is applied and full work can resume shortly after the horse is shod. We recommend the horse stay out of the mud & water for 8-12 hours to allow full adhesive cure.

The patented cuff attachment system uses acrylic adhesives to bond to the entire hoof wall safely generating twice the holding strength of nails. The strongest attachment possible – particularly with cracked, thin, broken, brittle and shelly feet – is achieved with no glue on the bottom of the hoof and no risk to hoof integrity. This is the best method to overcome your horse's sensitivity to nails.

Removing the Shoes
The shoes can be removed by sanding the fabric off of the hoof wall using a disk sander. Alternatively, the shoes can be removed by inserting the blade of a utility knife between the hoof and the shoe (find the plane above the rim pad & below the hoof), and cutting the fabric from heel to heel. The fabric is then peeled off the hoof wall using shoe pullers. In most cases, the fabric will separate from the adhesive, leaving a layer of adhesive on the hoof wall. Care must be taken that the hoof wall is not damaged when removing the fabric. If the hoof wall starts to separate when the fabric is peeled, the fabric must be sanded off the hoof instead.

Note: The fabrics are extremely tough and require a very sharp utility knife to cut through the 4 layers.
