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 remarkably 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 interrelationship between the structures."

As a farrier for over 22 years, my passion for helping horses and the farrier trade has only grown.  I focus my practice on therapeutic shoeing and performance horses. During my time in the industry, I have also gained an interest in farrier’s themselves.  Primarily, an interest to help keep them sound.  An interest in one of our essential tools – our apron.  Badger Built LLC, was born in 2014 after more than a decade of designing, researching, and making numerous aprons.  Over that time an ergonomic apron was created that works with your body, not against it.  It is the most comfortable apron I have ever worn so that the thought of sharing it with others and seemed fitting.  Teaming up with my wife Michaela made it possible.  After all, I thought other farriers just might want the same."

"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."

Scientifically proven to allow the horse to move with more natural biomechanics, EponaShoe benefits the health of the whole horse and may extend the riding career of most performance horses.  Horses of all disciplines have tried and loved the EponaShoe. Whether it be a western event, dressage, trail, endurance, eventing, ranching, or just a pleasure ride; the EponaShoe gives a horse unmatched comfort by simulating the conditions under which horses would naturally maintain their hooves."

“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."

"Over the past 15 years Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy “PEMF" has become the “go to” non-invasive, drug-free therapeutic modality used throughout the entire equine industry. In 2015, Magnus Magnetica developed and released its proprietary Hoof Pro System.  This is crucial for Farriers, who can now generate additional revenues by treating one hoof while working on another.  

Farriers and Veterinarians from around the world are learning about this technology and are not only using it in their practices, but also on their own bodies. So why do Farriers use PEMF on themselves?  Farriers are often frustrated by painful, chronic conditions.  They may be searching for a safe but effective alternative to pain pills to heal their body, improve sleep & physical performance.  The use of PEMF Technology just might be their answer. 
Many farriers have already visited with CEO Henry Siegel at past International Hoof-Care Summits or AAEP Conventions.  So, be sure to stop by their trade show booth at the Summit or AAEP Conventions or other events where you will receive PEMF treatments on your sore body parts. It will do wonders and you will better understand how horses benefit from these same treatments. In the meantime, for more information about the Hoof Pro System visit their website at  www.Hoof.pro"

“Realizing the need for a farrier school with an 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.”

"Think about what we ask of our equine athletes! The extreme physical demands we put on our horses causes them to have joint problems earlier in life than they would under natural circumstances. Joint supplementation has become a necessity to assist our horses to perform their best. By giving a single IM (intramuscular) injection of Summit Joint Performance® each month, we can help protect the joints that are being damaged by the activities that we (and they) love. The chondroitin sulfate in Summit promotes a healthy, thick synovial fluid, decreasing inflammation in the joints and improving the cushioning properties of the cartilage pads. This helps prevent the risk of early-onset joint pain and keep our partners feeling younger and staying competitive longer.  Whether you have a young up-and-coming star or an experienced veteran, Summit is the right choice for your equine athlete!

"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 well-being.

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."
