Equishox shoes are designed with practicality in mind, allowing for straightforward and efficient application by farriers. It was important to us that the shoes have a seamless fitting process that aligns with standard farrier practices. The innovative racing plate, maintains a balance between durability and flexibility, facilitating easy shaping and adjustment to the horse’s hoof.

Equishox, weighing approximately 125g per shoe with slight variations based on size, falls within the standard weight range for racing plates. Racing plates typically vary in weight based on factors such as material composition and size. The weight of Equishox aligns with the considerations for racing shoes, ensuring that it provides the necessary balance between durability and performance without compromising the horse’s agility and comfort on the track. One of our goals when crafting the shoe was to create a lighter shoe for the yard “an ounce on the foot is worse than a pound on the back”.

Equishox stands out not only for its exceptional durability but also for its ability to showcase minimal wear and tear. These innovative shoes prove to be as long-lasting as traditional metal shoes between routine shodding.

Equishox caters to the individual needs of horses with a diverse range of standard sizes. Our carefully crafted shoes are designed to accommodate various hoof dimensions. This ensures that every horse can enjoy the benefits of Equishox, tailored for an optimal fit, comfort, and top-notch performance.

While we’ve witnessed remarkable success on the racetrack, it’s essential to note that we currently lack sufficient research to establish whether this is a consistent trend. Our shoes are not engineered with the primary goal of enhancing speed or guaranteeing victory in races. Instead, the focus is on minimising injuries to horses and elevating safety standards in the sport. By doing so, our aim is to provide a platform that enables trainers to continue developing promising horses to their fullest potential.
