The ACR Open Heart Bar Shoe provides excellent support for the frog by spreading pressures and loadings at the back of the hoof.
Its nail holes from just after the toe to the heels allows a wide choice of nails positioning during nailing.
The tight heel bend allows for the laminitic foot's typical shape and facilitates application; the thinner heart allows to adjust the angle according to frog's height. Its application may be accompanied by resin on the rear part of the foot.
Its lateral rolling (from just after the toe to the mid quarters) and its open toe, seriously minimized pressures and extension's stress of the deep flexor tendon.
