Our Equishox vulcanised rubber coated shoes are crafted with precision to provide the ideal balance between speed and safety. The unique rubber composition offers remarkable shock absorption, effectively cushioning your horse’s hooves during intense sprints, sharp turns, and every stride in between. This reduces the risk of potential injuries, ensuring your horse remains at optimal health and in the best condition for the races ahead.

Tried, Tested and Trusted.

“Sunday Soldier sustained a nasty wound to her fetlock in her last race at the end of August and needed some time off to recover. She came back to work and although she wasn’t lame, she just wasn’t moving very well.

A month ago, we decided to give Equishox a try and have been very impressed with the results. Sunday Soldier is enthusiastic in her work, moving better than ever and had her first run back since her injury, where she won comfortably by a margin of seven lengths.

She’ll definitely stay in the Equishox shoes; the impact absorption factor has clearly helped her to move more freely at home, and the improvement in her racing performance, when she won at Musselburgh, is a testament to that. We’ll be trying Equishox shoes on a few of our other horses now, and will be hoping for similar results!”

“Alan King Racing have been using Equishox racing plates since late September this year on several horses.

We have had good results with horses that have knocked joints in the past, one being Grandeur D’Ame. The shoe allowed his joints to settle giving us a smoother time during training and resulting in him winning first time out at Wetherby on the 18/11/23 by 25 lengths, he also ran a blinder at Cheltenham in the December Gold Cup 16/12/23 finishing 4th . A similar story could be said for another young horse who finished 2nd on his debut in a Bumper.

Alan King Racing would recommend the use of Equishox shoes and we have seen first-hand the welfare benefits from a striking point of view and greater stability. We also look forward to the benefits of the shoe when the ground quickens up on the flat and summer jumping.”

Alan King, Trainer

“These are probably the best shoes we have used on horses with bad feet. It has reduced the concussion on her down to zero, she was a horse who was in and out of lameness, and so far she has run once finishing 3rd , since using these shoes “

“I have used the new shoes and I find them easy to fit and nail on, also so far I have had great results using them with horses with sore feet. With one Thoroughbred starting to improve on the race track through using them.”

Laura Easenhul

“I think these shoes are great with the rubber coating and no sharp edges and would cause no problems if the horse were to kick out”.
