This is the pad for laminitis, founder, abscessing and transitioning to hard ground. All support, but it does still provide a certain amount of cushion. Primary purpose is to support the bony column.
The RWB provides maximum stimulation of frogs, bars and sole.
It is excellent at expelling abscesses. A hole can be cut into the pad to relieve the abscess area. See picture above for an example.
RWB can be used as a base pad to help lengthen the useful life of the top pad and it provides a somewhat cushioned base for the horse to stand on. Example would be to put a 1/2″ blue on top for cushion with the RWB under to lengthen the life. The RWB is used as the primary base pad for the founder pads.
Great pad for hoof boots when the horse just can’t take the hardness of the sole of a boot. Usually the last pad used when transitioning the hoof from shoes to hard ground.
