Product Information 

Drop forged out of aircraft grade aluminium and heat treated to optimise wear, the Jim Blurton aluminium race bar horseshoe retains the ability to be reshaped.

Features include:
  • a sweeping radius in the toe.
  • pitched nail holes.
  • a radius bar that mimics the bulbs of the heels.

This makes it ideal for thoroughbred horses with weak heels, coffin joint pain and a broken H.P.A.

The aluminium race bar horseshoe supports, whilst still allowing horses to do fast work as the bar follows the shape of the heels. The shoe incorporates a roll toe and is safed off at the heel. The Jim Blurton horseshoe designs uniquely incorporate pitched nail holes, providing a different angle for each nail. This makes it easier to nail on and improves the fitting experience. The shoe is available in sizes 3 – 7. These sizes are the same as standard race plates, and are toe clipped as standard.
