Distributing worldwide, since 2007 Jim Blurton is widely acknowledged as a market leader in the crafting of functional, high quality horseshoes used across the globe by farriers who are dedicated to horse welfare whilst maximising equine performance.
An internationally acclaimed farrier for over 40 years, Jim Blurton has designed and developed a comprehensive range of remedial shoes he is proud to put his name too.
Jim Blurton specialist horseshoes are designed to solve foot issues caused from the various stresses of competition and everyday problems. Each shoe is designed for comfort and ease of fitting, providing the farrier with everything they need in a shoe to provide a perfect fit and solution every time.
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. In addition the shoe is safed off at the heel.
The bar follows the shape of the heels reducing the chance of pulled shoes.
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 shoe includes a countersunk position for stud holes and incorporates pitched nail holes providing a different angle for each nail making it easier to nail on.
Sold per pair.
