Changes in the Range of Innovations Products at the Turn of the Year

The year is coming to its end and as always, we are checking our Innovations products in order to see which of them have proven their worth in the past months enough to join our regular range of products. This year, the following products have qualified: Benefit from the occasion until the end of the year to buy these products at the reduced Innovations introductory price!
Application of our Instant Adhesives without Certificate

Application of our Instant Adhesives without Certificate

The European Commission has changed annex XVII of the REACH regulation (EG) (new no. 74) with the regulation (EU) 2020/1149 which has entered into force as from August 24, 2020. Many farriers are currently unsure which adhesives they may use in the future without a corresponding training and certificate. That's why we have asked our glue vendors about the "diisocyanates" topic: The instant adhesives that are available in our online shop are not affected by the new regulation and you can use them as usual (while respecting the safety information given with the glue).

NEW: Soft Glue-On Tabs for Lower Temperatures and Irregular Hoof Walls

We have developed and tested a new version of our well-tried glue-on tabs Wolf Busch. In addition to the easily glueable elastomer, the soft version consists of a softer material that nestles up against irregularly shaped hoof walls and is easy to handle in case of winterly temperatures.

Time to Say Goodbye

Duplo Innovations serves to test new products and, in short, to find out what works and what does not. In the case of the new test materials (which were intended primarily for endurance riders) we unfortunately found that they are comparable to the synthetic material of our regular Duplo horseshoes. The horseshoes with the blue and yellow knob arrays performed well in abrasion but we had clearly hoped for more. For this reason, we have decided to discontinue the "yellow" and "blue" Duplo models. We thank all testers for their feedback!

EU-VAT E-Commerce Package

Please note that we are obligated to implement the EU-VAT E-Commerce Package as from invoice date July 1, 2021. That means that we have to invoice the VAT of the respective destination country for intra-community deliveries without valid VAT identity number. For example, if a package is to be shipped to Spain, we have to invoice 21% VAT.

Duplo Sale

In the last years, we have launched several new models at Duplo Innovations. So with the Basic, the Heavy Duty Shoes and now the new mixtures, it's time again to also take a critical look at the existing range.
We have therefore decided to remove the Extra version of the Clipped and Threaded Duplo models with Closed Sole Area of our range. The remaining quantities are now available at a reduced price in the Sale. The offer is valid without right of return and as long as stocks last.

Extra Horseshoes with Synthetic Lip

Our green Extra horseshoes are currently revised. Depending on which model and which size you order, you'll get a horseshoe with or without synthetic lip. By the way: All STS models are already produced with a synthetic lip.

Packaging Licensing

According to the German Packaging Act, we are licensed with LUCID (Foundation Central for Packaging Registry = Stiftung Zentrale Stelle für Verpackungsregister) and participate in the Dual System "activate" by Reclay in matters of our packaging materials.

Icelandic Horse Competitions

Good news for Duplo enthousiasts with Icelandic Horses: After a test phase of two years, Duplo Composite Horseshoes are accepted at IPZV and FEIF competitions!
