Designed for the sport horse with a wide section, the Jim Blurton sport straight bar horseshoe incorporates a rolled toe which extends as far as the toe quarter, reducing the strain on the coffin joint during break over. The bar follows the shape of the heels reducing the chance of pulled shoes. The shoe incorporates a roll toe and is safed off at the heel.
This shoe offers support to the heel and frog spreading the weight evenly throughout the foot. This shoe has a bar that runs directly between the two heels, enlarging the ground-bearing surface at the back of the foot. The shoe is ideal for competition horses, as the bar does not protrude excessively at the back of the foot, whilst offering enlarged ground-bearing surface.
The Jim Blurton shoes are unique as they incorporate pitched nail holes, providing a different angle for each nail making it easier to nail on. The horseshoes are available with side or toe clips and they have a countersunk position for stud holes. The straight bar shoe is available in multiple sizes (section size increases with size of shoe).
