Outer Rim - Front

Outer Rim - Hind

Outer Rim - Front

We refer to this shape as the Standardbred because of its narrower, longer shape that is very typical of the Standardbred front foot. This aluminum shoe is proving to be a tough, good wearing shoe for the Standardbred surfaces, but can also be used successfully with Thoroughbreds. The punching is also slightly deeper to help get good nailing. Available unclipped or toe clipped with a 2mm toe grab. Shoes are symmetrical.

Punched for 4-1/2 Race or 4-1/2 Slim.

Outer Rim - Hind

While Kerckhaert’s Outer Rim Hind is an ideal shape for Standardbreds, this aluminum shoe can also be used successfully on Thoroughbreds. It has a strong toe clip, unique surface finish with sole relief and a 2mm toe grab. Shoes are symmetrical.

Punched for 4-1/2 Race or 4-1/2 Slim.

Full & Half Swedge Hind Toe Clipped

Full & Half Swedge Unclipped

For years the market had no choice in the Standardbred shoe market. The introduction of the Kerckhaert Swedges, made with a tough, durable steel is a dream come true for many. The shapes of the shoes are a significant improvement and the careful consideration seen in the nail placement and support in the heels are noticeable features.

Full & Half Swedge Hind Toe Clipped

The clipped version of the Kerckhaert Full and Half Swedge offer additional security for the shoeing cycle.

9/16

TDR (Half Round) Front

9/16

The Standardbred market has long relied on the half round style to train and race. The Kerckhaert design gives better heel support and a much more realistic nail pattern to help with the performance of the horse. The shape of the shoes minimizes the amount of work needed to get a good fit. A high quality steel provides excellent wear and support for the foot. Shoes are symmetrical.

Punched for 4-1/2 Race, 4-1/2 Slim or 5 Race.
