The design of the Eventer aluminum horseshoe is the same as that of the standard steel Eventer horseshoe, except that it is cast in aluminum. The use of aluminum has made it possible to reduce the weight, compared to the steel Eventer horseshoe by around 70%. Aluminum does not have the wear resistance of steel, but because of its lower weight it is perfect for horses that are in rehabilitation after a leg injury, or for horses that are very sensitive to strain or loading injuries. Also this lighter shoe is useful where the horse requires the additional support provided by sole pads or silicone. The hoof side features a sole relief, which is a chambered edge in the toe section to prevent the formation of pressure points on the sole. The heels are rounded and thus help avoid wear and self-inflicted injuries. Both front and hind shapes are symmetrical.
