What Makes our Composite Horseshoes so Special?

In the following videos, we will demonstrate our horseshoe and its function on the horse's hoof, including a glimpse behind the scenes of our production facility in the Bavarian Forest in Germany.

Nail-on, Glue-on and Cast Shoe - Application Guides

Our horseshoes provide you with the flexibility to cater to the horse's needs based on hoof shape and situation. They can be applied in the traditional nailed manner or used as nail-less hoof protection.

Accessories for Composite Horseshoes

For ideal hoof protection, sometimes not only the perfect shoeing is necessary but also the right accessories. In the following films, we would like to introduce some of our accessories to you.

Sometimes, a farrier needs to be creative to find the best solution for the horse. In our film, Sandy Frank demonstrates a unique combination: a half-nailed and half-glued wedge shoe to adjust the hoof angle.

To protect the threaded inserts from excessive dirt until the application of the studs, we recommend using closing plugs. In the video, we demonstrate how to remove the closure plugs and replace them with studs.

Our closing plugs are suitable for both our threaded composite shoes as well as traditional steel shoes. They seal the stud hole, protecting it from dirt.

Accessories for Steel Shoes

Since the world is never entirely black or white, and as developers of composite horseshoes, we understand the importance of traditional horseshoes. That's why we also offer appropriate accessories for traditional steel shoes in our product range.
