Dr. Redden has developed the Aluminum 4 Point Railbar Shoe for the sole purpose of having an aluminum rail shoe equipped with a frog and heel cushion support. The basic rail shoe has become very useful in treating a variety of common foot problems when significant deep digital flexor tension needs to be addressed. Shaping the rail shoe with a rockered ground surface; with a gentle to heavy breakover positioned directly beneath the center of articulation; greatly enhances the mechanical components of the shoe. Horses with severely underrun heels often suffer significant compression of the digital cushion; collapsed heel tubules and bars. Most will have a large healthy frog that protrudes well below the heel tubules. The bar adds a significant support system to the rail and the rockered rail shoes.
