New Contact Person in the USA!

We have great news – Kathi and Peter van der Gugten from Equine Hoof Solutions are now the new contact persons in the USA. Kathi has been working with horses for more than 20 years, and Peter spends 4 months each year in the Alps as a trail guide, always using our horseshoes. Both of them are convinced of our products and are ready to assist you with any questions or support you might need.
You can find their contact information on our list of distribution partners.

NEW: "Ice" Studs

We now have "Ice" Studs for grip in extreme situations in our range!
The conical "Ice" Studs are available in a self-tapping version as 12mm and 14mm studs in thread size M8, M10 and M12.
The conical shape of our studs was developed in collaboration with our partner in Canada with a view to use during the winter.
This is the reason for the name "Ice" studs. Of course, there is nothing to stop you from using them as grass studs, for example, if your horse is comfortable with them.
However, we would not recommend these pointed studs on hard ground such as asphalt.
Our Nailless now also available in larger sizes !

Our Nailless now also available in larger sizes !

Glued horseshoes become more and more popular and the Nailless is therefore getting bigger.
We would like to give you in the future the possibility to use the Nailless also for larger hooves, therefore we will include it up to size 170mm round and 166mm oval in our product range.
The new sizes will be added immediately as soon as they have been produced.

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).
