How to determine to correct EponaShoe size for your horse.
On a freshly trimmed horse, use a ruler and measure the foot at its widest point to determine the width. Then measure the center of the foot from heel to toe to determine the length.
The EponaShoe Size 4 Wide measure 5.9" wide and 6.4" from toe to heel
EponaShoes come in two different shapes. Narrow (N) and Wide (W). The wide shoes are more round while narrow shoes are more oval shaped.
If your horse's measurements do not exactly match the shoe size, do not worry. EponaShoes can be nipped, rasped, or grinded up to 1/8" on each side (reducing shoe total width by up to 1/4"). The length of the shoe can be adjusted by taking up to 1/8" off the heel end and up to 1/4" off the toe end. More often than not, no shaping of the shoe is needed at all.
With special application of glue and packing, and a few insider tricks developed by the Epona-Institute, EponaShoes can easily be transformed into a Therapeutic shoe. EponaShoe has proven success in treating heel pain, flat soles, navicular, ringbone, laminitis, and founder.
