This shoe has a large sloping surface from the outside upper edge to the inside lower edge. This sloping surface extends from quarter end to quarter end, thus granting the shoe special preventive and therapeutic properties. The integral heels provide light support on penetrable surfaces to the hind part of the shoe, also allowing to plant holes for studs. For horses making narrow turns, the easing of the medial-lateral break-over produced by this shoe reduces asymmetric pressures on the joints and tensions on collateral ligaments. The easing of the dorsal and diagonal take-off reduces tension peaks on the deep flexor tendon, on the inferior check ligament and pressures on the navicular bone.
The take-off is actually eased in all directions, which helps reduce laminar stresses and stressed white line. This shoe is suitable if the horse is intolerant to dorsal extension, lateral and medial lifting. It is fit for use on surfaces which are not very penetrable. The seated-out toe on the upper inside surface avoids sole pressures. The holes are punched in such a way that the nails can be driven into the wall with the right inclination.
