product description

Composite Horseshoes in Show Jumping and Eventing

Show Jumping, Eventing and Cross Country are demanding disciplines that require a lot from both horse and rider. High speed, various obstacles, and tight turns demand utmost concentration and precision.

With such demands, the requirements for the horseshoe are correspondingly high. In show jumping, the horseshoe must provide sufficient grip to prevent slipping or even falling when landing, and it must be sturdy enough to withstand the sometimes extreme stresses. Ideally, the shoe has stud holes that allow for regulary screwing in and out the horse cleats. This makes it possible to remove the cleats during rest periods to relieve the tendons and ligaments of the horse and to reduce the risk of injury in the herd.

Our response to these requirements is our 'Jumper', a clipped straight bar horseshoe with integrated stud holes.

The sturdy crossbar of the Straight Bar horseshoe provides additional stability and is particularly resistant to twisting. Especially in show jumping, this extra stability can be beneficial to ensure that the horseshoe withstands the extreme stresses.

The quarter clips help prevent the horseshoe twisting or shifting on the hoof during regular shoeing periods. This is particularly important during landings and tight turns in the course in disciplines like show jumping or eventing.

The stud holes of the 'Jumper' are suitable for regularly screwing in and out the cleats. This allows the cleats to be easily removed after training or competition, preserving the locomotor system of the show jumping horse.

The special feature of this horseshoe is the shock-absorbing effect of the plastic coating. Especially in show jumping, eventing, or during hunting, high stresses affect the locomotor system of the jumping horse.

The Structure of a Composite Horseshoe

As the name suggests, the 'Jumper' horseshoe was originally developed for show jumping; however, the shoe has also found its fans among eventing and hunting riders.

We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to watch our animation video on the structure of the composite horseshoe. The video illustrates the interaction between sturdy metal and shock-absorbing plastic on the horse's hoof.

Application and Safety Instructions for Straight Bar Shoes with Stud Holes — Video

Our goal is to support show jumping horses as effectively as possible with our horseshoes and the appropriate cleats. Disciplines like jumping and eventing entail certain risks, and no matter how good the shoe may be, it's always possible for a horse to slip during landing or in tight turns. Therefore, always pay attention to a speed adapted to the ground surface.

Please refer to our safety instructions, which are directed not only to the farrier during shoeing but also to the rider and horse owner during the shoeing period. Thanks to the soft material and rounded edges, the risk of injury with a shoe with a plastic coating is lower in the herd. However, the use of cleats always carries additional risks. One of the great advantages of the 'Jumper' horseshoe is that the cleats can be screwed in or out as needed.

Shoeing Instruction

In our video, Stephan Becker explains the general application of our composite horseshoes. The adjustment of the shoe to the horse's hoof and the correct riveting are two of the most important aspects — especially when the shoe is exposed to high stress, as in show jumping and tight turns in the course.

Please do not grind down to the metal core and always keep the position of the stud holes and the straight bar in mind during all adjustments to the horseshoe.

Nailed Application of Composite Horseshoes

The Jumper is typically used as a nail-on shoe. However, we have also heard from customers who have successfully used the Jumper as a glue-on shoe. From our perspective, this cannot be generalized, as we believe that especially in show jumping, a lot depends on the individual movement of the horse and the difficulty level of the obstacles. If you have made some experiences with the Jumper yourself, we would appreciate it if you would leave us a testimonial. This will help us and other show jumpers find their ideal horseshoe.

Modifying the Jumper Shoe

Due to the sturdy crossbar, the metal core of the Jumper — just like a conventional straight bar horseshoe — is less easy to adjust. However, thanks to our extensive range of sizes and shapes, there should be a suitable horseshoe for your horse.

The Jumper is available in the following sizes:

  • round shape — typically for the front hooves — from size 114mm to 170mm
  • oval shape — typically for the hind hooves — from size 114mm to 166mm
  • STS-shape — with a slightly straightened toe area — from size 102mm to 154mm

For those dealing with larger hooves, we offer the 'Traction' model from our HDS range. The Traction is available up to size 198mm.

If you're unsure about the correct size, feel free to use our template.

Even with a straight bar horseshoe like the Jumper, it's possible to grind a toe direction or modify the open sole area into a closed sole area using our modification accessories.

We generally advise against using our extensions to change the width or length of the horseshoe, as in these cases, the subsequent position of the stud holes and the straight bar may no longer be optimal, potentially exerting localized pressure on the wrong areas of the hoof.

Using Cleats During Extreme Stresses

Show jumping and eventing usually require higher cleats. The forces exerted on the shoe are enormous, so the stud hole must have a secure fit in the metal core. For optimal stability, the Jumper features a solid straight bar. However, when using higher cleats, it's important that the cleat, especially on harder surfaces, is not used permanently. Removing the cleats after training or competition also reduces the risk of injuries in the herd situation.

Please consider both the ground conditions and the dynamics in herd situations with every use of horse cleats. The stud holes as well as the correct position of the cleats and the horseshoe on the hoof must be regularly checked. Further information can also be found in our safety instructions

We have various shapes and heights of horse cleats in our range that are suitable for use with the Jumper. Depending on whether you want to use the horseshoe for show jumping, hunting or "just" for the best possible slip protection in extreme winter conditions, you will need different cleats.

The Special Feature of the Stud Holes in the Jumper Shoe

The stud holes of this straight bar horseshoe are firmly integrated into the sturdy metal core. As a result, they can withstand extreme stresses for longer periods.

When screwed in, the stud sinks into the thread for about 3mm. That way, the first pitch of the screw thread won't be damaged even during abrasion and the thread will be easier to clean. Using the 8mm studs as an example, this means that the effective height is 5mm.

During times without stud use, we recommend protecting the stud hole with a closing plug.

Mounting and dismounting of the cleats

If you need to screw the cleats in and out regularly, we recommend our cleats with self-tapping threads. In principle, changing the cleats is of course also possible with cleats without self-tapping threads; however, it is usually faster with the self-tapping version.

For changing the cleats, you'll need (each in the appropriate size for the stud holes of your horseshoe):

  • cleats in the desired height
  • stud hole cleaner
  • hex key
  • metal closure plugs, masonry drill bit, and matching hex bit or
    plastic closure plugs and a slot screwdriver, for example

After you've finished training, unscrew the cleat from the stud hole using the appropriate hex key.

Nail Size The ideal nail size varies depending on the hoof situation and size — you can find a general recommendation in our store at the hoof nails.
Quarter Clips The quarter clips facilitate the nailing process and help avoiding twists and displacements of the horseshoe during the regular shoeing period; in case of the STS models, the side clips are placed a little bit further towards the heels compared to the other shoes. The quarter clips must be monitored regularly.
Stud Holes Round/oval shape: four stud holes
STS shape: two stud holes
Thread Size The thread size of the stud holes depends on the size of the horseshoe. Please refer to the corresponding overview above.
Stud Change This model is suitable for multiple stud changes; you can screw the cleats in and out as needed.
