The Razer shoe technology was created in Sweden in 2003 by founder Erik Lundquist. After battling lameness issues with his own horses he began searching for an alternative to the steel horseshoe, which locks the hoof in place. Research and development were carried out in cooperation with Uppsala University "Hippologum" National Institute for Equine Research in Sweden and in collaboration with Veterinary Associate Professor Lars Roepstorff. With the aid of gait anaylysis software and high-speed video, they developed the Razer shoe using a tempered tool steel that flexed with the horse's hoof.
His original design quickly rose to popularity in the Swedish equine shoe market. In 2012, the concept was modified into a second line to fit the needs of the Quarter Horse. However, the hallmarks of the original shoe are still an important part of the new line.
Razerhorse is a hoof care company that has combined science and technology to enhance the well-being of the horse. We have created a line of flexible steel horse shoes and polyurethane hoof pads that mimic the natural function of the hoof while still offering protection.
The Razer shoe is made from a tempered tool steel that is as light as aluminum, but as strong as a traditional steel shoe. The innovative design allows it to flex with the horse's hoof allowing for the natural movement of the horse while shod.
In addition to the Razer flexible steel horseshoe, we offer the Propad, a polyurethane hoof pad.
The Propad is designed to work as a shock absorber and a frog support. The Propad is the only pad on the market to offer an independent frog support to help promote healthy blood flow and frog contact to the ground. This unique accordion-like design allows frog movement without causing pressure when at rest reestablishing frog function on a shod hoof.
The Propad also increases comfort with shock absorption and aid in the proper weight distribution by removal of weight from the hoof wall. The Propad can be used with not only Razer shoes but any open heel shoe.
