Tender Cushion pads are a custom made open cell rubber unlike any other. The pads are available as thick hoof pads and a thinner boot insert, both with a non-slip texture. Open cell allows for the pad to return to its original shape after each step. Tender Cushion Hoof Pads and Boot Inserts are the only available open cell hoof pad on the market. Closed cell products have a memory when compressed, similar to a memory foam mattress.
Tender Cushion pads are available as both thick hoof pads and thin boot inserts.
The thick hoof pads are taped to the hoof using various methods.
The thinner boot inserts are put inside of any available hoof boot product, which many horse owners are already familiar with.

For injuries, plan to buy a minimum of two pads per hoof so that you have a clean pad to attach when you remove a used one.
For long-term term quality of life wear, buy extra pads so you have them on hand. Pads can be worn on both front or both rear hooves at the same time long-term for balanced comfort.
A Tender Cushion pad can be worn for up to a week at a time depending on the conditions and method of attachment.
During transport, both styles of pads can be worn on all four hooves a the same time. Buy a minimum of 8 pads per horse you plan to use them for. Four in use with four replacements clean replacements. Use a sharpie to mark the pads of each horse so they get their custom clean pads each time.
The pads can sometimes be washed, dried, and reused, but they should be allowed to dry completely before being reattached.
