About this project
The world’s first clippable runners for horses, using our patent pending Mega Lock Fastener Technology.
We have developed brand new hoof protection for horses using cutting edge technology.
Meet the Megasus Horserunners - the world’s first shock absorbing hoof protection that allows all natural hoof movements and works on any type of terrain. Think of these as the first DIY running shoes for horses!
Our patent pending high performance fastener system allows you to easily clip the Megasus Horserunners on and off at maximum convenience for both, horse and owner – without using any nails! FABULOUS!
Why are Megasus Horserunners non-permanent?
Lift up your horse’s leg, take a ruler and measure the widest point of the hoof. E.g. if your measured value is 124mm, you will need the Megasus Horserunners in size 130.
The Megasus Task Force consists of a group of horse lovers who tirelessly test our prototypes and give us their trust. Four selected members of this team would like to share their experiences with you.
1. Pledging: when will I get to choose which color and size of Megasus Horserunners I want? After the campaign ends, we will send out a survey where you can choose which Megasus color version and size you want.
2. Donation: I don´t have a horse but I want to support your idea. How can I do that? We introduce two valuable charitable organizations working with horses: a german rescue rider team and an austrian organization helping seriously ill children. You buy Megasus and we deliver size and color to your favourite organization.
We've now finalized all our Megasus Horserunners prototypes, but moving to the production phase requires significant capital and scale because we will need a tool for every size. We need your help to finance the required resources and ensure we can meet minimum order targets. We've spent months and months working out the tiniest of details about this project, and are very excited over the prospect of finally having the opportunity to bring the fun of movement and comfort to you and your horse.
We offer GLOBAL SHIPPING to all of you. To make it easy for everyone we will have a uniform shipping rate for every country of $15 for every reward (except postcards: we offer FREE SHIPPING).
Thank you for reading this far! We cannot tell you how much we appreciate it. Thank you, in advance, for your investment to this campaign. It’s because of YOU that we can allow horses a more comfortable run and put the minds of horse lovers at ease. If, for any reason you are not able to donate to this campaign right now, that’s no problem! You can still help us out by sharing this project on your social media pages and helping us get the word out.
Risks and challenges
After years of development and dreaming, we are so excited to finally introduce this product for your horses! While manufacturing a product has become easier in today's well-connected world, it’s still quite a complex challenge. To best prepare for the challenges that come with the territory, we've partnered with supply chain and manufacturing experts to help us tackle challenges in production, engineering and retail management.
We have developed our plan for manufacturing in Europe and for shipping to our backers around the world. Because we had previously founded and launchedtwo synthetic hoof protections „Dynamix“ and „Easywalker“, which we are extremely proud of, years ago we are well experienced and have long-term partnerships with manufacturers for all of Megasus Horserunners major components. There will be some changes in design in the coming weeks to make the Megasus Horserunners even more durable, waterproof and customizable. During the production process, we expect to make minor changes to optimize the design for mass production. On the logistics side, we have established partnerships with a global fulfilment house and international shippers to help the Megasus Horserunners get to where they’re going quickly and safely.
Although it's difficult to plan for every unforeseen circumstance, such as political or economic events that might delay production or delivery we will do our best to solve them quickly should any of these situations arise. We pledge to keep our backers well-informed in a timely manner throughout the entire production process and to do everything we can to deliver the Megasus Horserunners to you as planned.
We cannot wait to get these on your horse’s hooves!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
