                              Pes Equinus, or Clubfoot

 

Clubfoot is a too-upright limb conformation, it arises from a too-short deep flexor tendon from the point of view of the movement, a limb conformation that is too upright will result in foot disorder and an undesirable gait. The foot axis is broken forward in the hoof joint. The heels are high but the whole hoof is loaded.

 

 

 The farrier plays a crucial role in the treatment. The hoof correction should focus on bringing more flexibility to the lower foot.

 

In this case, a small toe extension was added to the shoe. The special glue-on shoes force the horse to use the back part of the hoof and thus load the heels. The heels are high but the whole hoof is loaded.
