The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 48 | Building balance and proprioception with SURE FOOT Founder Wendy Murdoch

 

Such a pleasure to have a conversation with Wendy Murdoch, developer of the SURE FOOT pad. I’ve been seeing these pads being used by friends and colleagues and needed to hear from the source what they are all about! During this chat we got into the importance of developing balance and proprioception in our horses, the role of the hoof to allow the horse to find themselves in space and to reduce anxiety, and the power of giving our horse choice in their healing process. We had a great time!
Wendy Murdoch is an internationally re-knowned riding instructor and clinician. In 2012 she discovered the SURE FOOT® Equine Stability Program, which allows horses to reprogram their behaviour, balance and movement. SURE FOOT is an innovative concept that is helping horses worldwide and are specifically designed for use with horses by horse owners, riders, trainers and equine body workers. The SURE FOOT® Equine Stability Program is your horse’s path to improved performance, comfort and confidence.
