The Lateral Extension Hind Horseshoe is used for many different things. They are very useful for horses that ‘Brush’ as it works by widening the horse’s gait during locomotion.
It can also be used as a support shoe and in the treatment of bone spavin. Horses with bone spavin attempt to unload the dorsal (front) aspect of the small tarsal joints by redistributing their weight. The lateral extension is used in an attempt to make the horse more comfortable, by changing the weight distribution.
Jim Blurton has made sure that the farrier can easily fit these and have confidence in their stability.
Available as part of the Jim Blurton remedial horse shoe range, the sports heart bar shoe design was developed and tested at Jim’s forge in Mid Wales. It has been tested by some of the world’s leading farriers and equine experts.
