Horseshoe in Australia has long been considered a kind of amulet, a talisman that brings its owner happiness, health, good luck. But all this, of course, good wishes could not come true, if this item is not properly stored or placed in the wrong place. Also, a lot depends on the method of purchase, the material of manufacture, fixing of the horseshoe, and other nuances.

Price and Availability

The horseshoe is made of metal. It is U-shaped and serves to protect the hoof from wear and tear. The horseshoe has been around since the 9th century. It is the farrier who sets the horseshoes and forges them to the right measure. The horseshoe has long been considered a lucky charm. Horseshoe price in Australia ranges from $20 to $500 AUD and the price varies according to the quality of the metal. Using horseshoe is good for your horse. There is a wide range of horseshoe are available in various styles and shapes.

Shoeing your horse has become an almost automatic gesture. The vast majority of equines which are ridden in recovery, trekking or competition are shod. Have you ever wondered why shoeing is so important?

For centuries, efforts have been made to improve the comfort and performance of the horse-rider pair thanks to equipment. Creation of the saddle, the bit, the gaiters. The fittings are perfectly in line with this process of improving riding needs. Here are the reasons for fitting horseshoes:

The horseshoe is made up of different parts: the sponges at the ends of the two branches, the quarters on the rear part, the udders on the intermediate part and the clamps on the front part. The stamps are the small holes that accommodate the nails. However, it can come in many forms depending on the type of horse's needs.

The Role of Fitting Horseshoe

Limit Wear on the Hoof

The horseshoe helps prevent wear and tear on the hoof horn. The horn can wear out very quickly when the horse is working, or moving on hard, uneven ground.

A Correction

The horseshoe can have orthopedic virtues. When the plumbing of the hoof is bad, the shoe can correct the defect. Iron can also be used to preserve atrophied feet, to relieve flat or chapped feet.

Processing

In certain pathologies, the horseshoe can be very useful. In the event of foot abscess, bleeding, hygrometer of the elbow, or even bone and joint disorders, the shoe can help relieve the horse, using specially adapted shoes.

Comfort

Horses that move in hard, stony terrain can be particularly sensitive, and the shoe provides them with greater comfort.

The Importance of the Horseshoe

The hoof is made of a horn covering that protects the bones and flesh of the foot. When the horse lives in the wild, the wear on the horn is proportional to its growth. However, this is only valid for horses that are actually in the wild, and not for horses that live in a meadow.

A horse in the meadow, whether working or not, must be trimmed regularly. Trimming compensates for a lack of natural wear. A horse's shoes are usually changed every 6 to 8 weeks. The wear of the irons is not the only criterion to take into account, to change the irons. It is also necessary to watch the growth of the horn. At certain times of the year, this growth is more or less strong and rapid.

It is possible to shoe a horse, only the forelegs. This is often the case with horses or ponies that do little work. The ideal iron should be light while being stiff. It should be thin but cushioning. It should not wear out too quickly and can be more or less adherent, depending on the discipline practiced. Shoeing is essential for a working horse. A poorly shod horse will suffer, limp, and quickly become unusable.
