Clip-On Horseshoes

Clip-On Horseshoes

The clip-on horseshoes aim to bring horseshoes out of the iron age.

The clippable runners were designed based on a research that a horse’s hoof can move vertically, not just horizontally. Whereas typical iron horseshoes keep the hoof rigid and unable to move naturally, the soft elements allow full range of movement. The shoe is also removable, and can be taken off when not needed to let the horse properly exercise its hooves and ligaments.
