"An important part about Polyflex shoes that people might not realize is that it's a lot like training a horse barefoot, but with the benefit of having a shoe on them. Particularly for the young ones that are still growing as we train them, putting a restricting shoe on will get you by but you might not end up with the right foot when all is said and done. That's why we have had a lot of success using Polyflex shoes. Polyflex will allow the foot to expand and contract with the natural motion of the horse which I believe helps to grow a stronger foot. By using Polyflex, we have made a big difference in the horses we train."
