Explore the world of our hoof protection, crafted in Germany, and the Original composite horseshoe. Learn more about our latest products and events. We want to help you find the best possible hoof protection for your horse to support its health and well-being optimally. Just like people, horses are individuals, and not every hoof requires the same hoof protection solution. Some horses can go barefoot, while others need horseshoes, and some may require additional shock absorption. We do not adhere to rigid, one-size-fits-all thinking or advocate for a single approach to alternative hoof protection. Our goal is to find the right solution for each horse. Make sure to regularly check our online shop to stay up to date with our product innovations and events.

Change in Shipping Costs at the Turn of the Year

Change in Shipping Costs at the Turn of the Year

We have tried to make our shipping conditions attractive and to offer all customers within Germany and the EU the option of free shipping. Due to rising shipping costs and constantly changing regulations on licensing and labeling of packaging along with associated costs reaching several thousand euros per country in the EU, we will unfortunately no longer be able to maintain this service in the future. From January 1, 2024, we will therefore raise the postage-free limit within Germany from € 119 gross (€ 100 net) to € 148,75 gross (€ 125 net). Within the EU, we will offer reduced shipping costs for orders over € 125 net. Outside the EU, shipping costs will continue to be calculated based on the weight of the shipment. The old shipping conditions can be used until December 26.

Our Classic now also available in pony sizes!

Our Classic Now also Available in Pony Sizes!

Finally, the time has come – with the HDS, we've grown larger, and now we turn our attention to the tiniest hooves! The pony sizes are our good news for all those who have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity for the smallest ones to benefit from shock-absorbing hoof protection. And when we refer to the smallest hooves, we mean it, as we will "shrink" our shoes down to a size of 50mm. The pony sizes are a special variation of our line of non-metal Classic shoes. They have neither knobs nor nailing slots and are intended solely for glued application.

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).
