I was fortunate to be one of the first Farriery businesses to get a Hoofbeat system in the UK. It has triggered a huge change in the way that I saw biomechanics and the system has helped me enormously to both document and understand what effects I was able to make or not make. It’s also an amazing tool to be able to both describe and document what the horse is actually doing rather than relying on a varying or subjective opinion.

I use this on all my remedial cases so I can objectively benchmark them at each shoeing cycle or when we are looking at how we can best manage injuries or how we can help improve a horses gait from a performance point shoeing point.

Hoofbeat has given me the tools to begin opening a door on the insight of biomechanics and gives factual feedback as to what that looks like and how effective I as a practitioner can be. I wouldn’t want to be without it!

Werkman black is something I had been toying with purchasing for a wee while as I had seen the data it provides, for me objective data to work from while shoeing horses is one of the greatest tools I have.

Since purchasing werkman black it has improved the outcome of my shoeing package for each individual horse to no end.

A large percent of the horses I shoe are sport horses with the majority being show jumpers, I always strive for achieving Boney column alignment and werkmand black proves that by achieving this the horse is a lot more comfortable through landing, mid stance and breakover phase and generally I get more out of my swing phase with a longer more even stride, ultimately improving performance.

I have a lot of referral work for lameness/soundness issues and most of the time it stems from a toe down landing with no loading of the caudal hoof, by adding caudal support and gaining Boney column alignment HOOFBEAT shows that a within a few strides the horse is back to heel first landing with a significant increase in caudal loading, without HOOFBEAT this would all be guess work as the human eye just can’t register things moving that quickly.

HOOFBEAT is the greatest tool in my tool kit and I don’t leave the house without it

HOOFBEAT offers me, as a professional vet-farrier, a wide range of possibilities. Firstly, it offers an excellent graphic representation which allows, not only to see different parameters of the hoof from different perspectives (landing, break over, swing, timings…), but also speed them up or slow them down, amongst other options. Secondly, it is an interesting assessment tool due to the objective measurements provided (landing and breakover times, stride high, length, percentage difference between stance phases…); even more, it can synthesize a lot of information in few seconds. This is why it is a fantastic teaching tool. Furthermore, all those features mentioned above help me to improve the relation and communication with my clients and with other colleagues.

On top of that, HOOFBEAT provides a better understanding of my own daily job helping me to do self-assessment. In fact, this tool lets me dissociate from other farriers and vets, which improves my brand equity providing a new perpective of our profession. Last but not least, I consider it as an electronic assessment device with great potential due to its endless possibilities, which allow it to be a perfect tool for researching.
