Equi shoes are a new drop forged English pattern steel horseshoe, they have been designed to encompass a number of advanced features that currently no other machine made shoes have, and we studied how handmade shoes were forged and took note of all the features that a farrier would put on a handmade shoe. Both front and hinds horseshoes have been designed in a symmetrical pattern and feature a classical strong toe shape which is very popular with UK Farriers.
All sizes are seated out to reduce any sole pressure and both heels are safed off after the last nail hole to reduce any brushing, the Clip is integral to the shoe and therefore no material has been removed from the horseshoe section to form the clip.
The groove is a true V shaped groove to which is the way handmade shoes would be made this offers better nail head security , the holes are stamped with pitch for Mustad E Head Slim nails and have no distortion of the nails holes, another advantage of the drop forged method of manufacture!
The heels are upright in a traditional upright block pattern but are slightly radius off on the road surface to reduce any sharp edges.
Due to the drop forged method of manufacture the horseshoes are very consistent and have little or no variation as compared to traditional steel horseshoes formed from rolled sections so that you get the same shoes time and time again.
