"The American Equus MonoBloc Horseshoe is the paragon of robustness and elegance in any discipline. The shoes have a lustrous anodized finish that is not only beautiful but functional. The MonoBloc Horseshoe is a light shoe for training sound young and adult horses as well as intense competition. Crafted meticulously with solid 6061 T6 Aircraft Grade Billet Aluminum our shoes yield a remarkabley comfortable, long lasting, ultra-light weight shoe. The shoe features a rolled front edge for a comfortable break over process, and with no steel wear bar the shoe will wear to the horse naturally with no interference. Counter sunk and beveled topside nail holes allow for accurate nailing with multiple pattern options. Our trademark deep anodizing process inhibits oxidation and prevents fungal growth between the shoe and hoof."

"The horse is a complex, intriguing animal. Anatomy-of-the-Equine is the unraveling of this complexity, a quest to understand the horse from the ground up. As hoof care providers, we have sought to understand what diagnostic tools do not show. For instance, why does the external hoof not always reflect the soundness of the horse? A comprehensive understanding of what is deep inside the hoof is critical. Without it, we are often only making assumptions. To help farriers, veterinarians and informed horse owners, we created a bridge between "book" anatomy and the living breathing horse. By using a variety of modalities to learn the anatomy of horses including carefully dissecting, diligently photographing and then identifying all of the structures; this allows us to visualize and understand the inter- relationship between the structures."

As the world's largest independent horseshoe manufacturer, the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory is a market leader in the farrier industry.

"Here at EasyCare, it's all about the horse and their human partners. Our business is manufacturing and distributing proven equine products that will enhance performance, provide protection, increase comfort for the horse and rider, and enrich the overall human-horse experience. Throughout five thousand years of domestication, the horse has had a more significant impact on human history than any other animal. Our goal is to help make the future of the horse/rider relationship as fulfilling and exciting as the past. What began in 1970 with the invention of the first Easyboot by Dr. Neel Glass to help a beloved family horse suffering from navicular disease, has since evolved into an entire line of hoof boots that provide an excellent alternative to iron shoes. This is due in part to the dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. We're a company that cares deeply about horses and we will continue to develop products that provide comfort, support and performance for our equine partners. We are more committed than ever to continue to create innovative hoof boot designs with features and options that will allow horse owners to provide a natural hoofcare solution for their horses."

“This product was originally created to sell to other farriers. Like many farriers, I have always encountered the basic problems found in many horses – sore feet, thrush, feet that are either too soft or too hard and brittle, founder (laminitis), quarter cracks and white line disease. I started looking for a topical treatment and experimented with various ingredients; until I came up with what I now call Farriers’ Fix Hoof Oil.  Farriers’ Fix has all natural ingredients and those who compete can be assured that it has tested negative under FEI guidelines. Farriers’ Fix “works like Magic” in the words of my clients. Horses that were suffering from stone bruises or were trimmed too short, in many cases, were rideable the next day – the ultimate proof of a product that works."

One farrier told another about nippers that cut better and lasted longer than any others, and the enterprise grew. The business has changed ownership and location several times since, but the tools that are named for George Earnest still make the shoer’s work easier and hold up better under hard use than all the rest. Our pledge to our customers is to continue this tradition of excellence, combining the craftmanship of skilled hands with modern methods and machinery, to produce superior tools. Since 1973, the Garner family has owned and operated G.E. Forge & Tool™. During this time, they have developed and produced many industry leading products. This tradition is continuing into its third generation with no end in sight. Our high quality staff aim to give you the customer service and quality product you deserve."

Hanton Horseshoes represents a revolutionary new way to apply horseshoes.  Our special tabbed design allows for the application of shoes without any glue on the bottom of the foot or locking in the horse’s heels.  In addition, the quick and easy application process using our unique “blister” system allows the glue to set with the horse standing in a weight-bearing position for a natural, correct fit, all while providing a safer way to shoe for both the horse and farrier.  They are available in aluminum and steel styles and the steel may be hot-fit and reset for added value.  Visit our website for a retailer near you or to order directly."

"Ken Davis & Sons, Inc. got its start in the small rural central Ohio community of Richwood in 1949. At that time our founder, Ken Davis, bought a hardware store in partnership with Glenn Hughes, and they opened the Davis-Hughes Hardware Company. Many rural hardware stores of that era had a few Phoenix and Diamond keg shoes and Capewell nails as a part of the normal inventory. Ken was an avid horseman with a special interest in the Standardbreds. It was through his association with the Standardbred shoers that he started to add Willie Charlie rasps, McGraw Brothers swedge molds, Heller tools, leather pads, and Miller Scossa pads to the inventory. We have been privileged to do business in all 50 states and some foreign countries.

“Realizing the need for a farrier school with emphasis on basic farrier skills, Donald with the help of his wife Ruth Ann founded North Carolina School Of Horseshoeing Inc. in 1976. The school ran until 1983. Once the students were trained, they had problems finding the equipment needed to begin their profession. To help the students, Donald designed and developed the NC line of Farrier anvils with special features for shaping shoes. The gas fired forge now known as the NC Whisper Forge soon followed and was patented in 1981. Today, NC Tool is a leading manufacturer of farrier tools and horseshoe supply company. NC Tool is still family owned and producing the same quality products while making several improvements over the years."

Soft-Ride Deep-Gel Equine Comfort boots is the latest innovation by Soft Ride co-owners whom have a long standing commitment to the health and welfare of horses.  Over thirty years ago, these co-founders of Soft-Ride developed a pour-and-place urethane flooring system for equine facilities.  The equine friendly surfaces have been installed for safety and comfort in many of the great farms across the country.  The idea for Soft-Ride boots was born from a need to have mobile support for horses during the stress of trailering and travel.  The Soft-Ride system has since developed into a multifaceted company that not only addresses the comfort of horses on the road and in their stalls, but has also branched into the veterinary and farriery field to help comfort laminitic horses.  Different orthopedic inserts have been created to provide comfort and support when transporting and stabling as well as in the treatment and prevention of injuries for all types of equine.”

"Since kicking off Wellpride in 2003, it’s been quite a ride. For over a decade, we’ve felt privileged to see Wellpride horses succeed at Devon, Rolex, Breeder's Cup, Kentucky Derby, and the eventing rounds of the Pan American games. We’ve also had the great satisfaction of helping rescue horses and older horses get that extra TLC for their hooves, digestive health, and joints. Regardless of whether you are a competitive horseperson or pleasure rider, we are excited to be a part of your horse’s path to improved wellbeing.  Wellpride was founded by two omega-3 experts, Dr. Bo Martinsen and Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers, with the support of a veterinarian and researcher consulting team. For over a decade, we have devoted ourselves to producing the best quality fish oil for horses, focusing on the dose and freshness level needed to achieve results. For our Wellpride formulation, we use a natural fish oil made from sardines, herring and small mackerel, purified to ensure it is rid of mercury and pesticides. With our easy-squeeze bottle, you can serve your horse the one to two ounces necessary for making a difference. And our human-grade oil is so fresh and palatable, you can even drink it yourself."

The WCB was formed in the spring of 2006 as a membership based organization born from an idea that company CEO, Craig Trnka had been kicking around for years. It began with a small core of people who brainstormed and gathered information then pulled the trigger with the WCB officially launching on June 19th 2006. The WCB founders wanted to produce horseshoeing competitions at venues where there was horse owning public to show and educate that a well educated farrier is a powerful tool - the only equine professional who sees the horse on a six week rotation in a non crisis situation."
