Many of you have, or know of someone who has a horse that is so lame, trimming is extremely difficult. Picking up one front foot puts so much extra weight on the other that the pain can increase beyond the horse's tolerance. Horse owner, Dave Montana had such a horse and devised his "EquiSling" to provide support and security for the horse (and the trimmer!) while the feet are handled.

Sling atached to support system
Foundered mare in an early version of the sling.
*Note: DO NOT assume your horse
will happily relax into the sling just because he has sore feet.
As with any new piece of equipment, introduce your horse to it before using it.
Always keep an eye on the horse and never leave him unattended when the sling is in place.
Make sure the sling is suspended from a solid support.
