Imagine a horseshoe that weighs less than 5 ounces, flexes with impact, provides traction and supports hoof walls and protects the entire hoof surface while also allowing the frog to do its job.
Imagine further if this shoe could reduce the incidence of navicular syndrome, prevent stone bruising, reduce shin splints and act as a bodyguard for the entire horse—hoof to spine. And, what if this shoe reduced coffin bone injuries, protected the deep flexor tendon from injury, shields the hoof from the hot desert terrain and is therapeutic in nature, providing proper angles to prevent unnecessary leverage on any portion of the horse’s body. Imagine if you could buy that shoe today.
GoldenwingsHorseshoes aims to provide for and preserve the integrity of the entire structure of the horse, sound from the ground up. The design of this new innovative shoe allows for all these benefits because the shoe flexes with the hoof, is lightweight and covers all of the hoof surface while leaving the frog exposed. Vital to soundness is the prevention of the challenges of injury and lameness. GoldenwingsHorseshoes intends to provide such opportunity.
The structure of the hoof actually functions well while placing the entire weight of the horse on the very last bone on its foot—the coffin bone. With a trot or gallop, the horse lands on one front foot at a time, placing an amazing amount of pressure on this bone. However, this small bone is easily injured. Traditional horseshoes provide no protection for the coffin bone.
GoldenwingsHorseshoes cover the coffin bone as well as other delicate hoof structures. Still, the shoe allows the frog to remain exposed to do its multi-function job. The frog is a V-shaped structure that extends forward across two-thirds of the sole. It is a dark gray-black rubbery organ that acts as a shock absorber for each stride of the horse. It has the capacity to grip hard or smooth surfaces of the ground.
The frog acts as a pump to move blood throughout the hoof and is an important part of the horse’s circulatory system. As such, it must be considered vital to the make-up and design of a horseshoe. The frog is the absolute base of the horse and remains a constant size based upon the size of the hoof and the horse. It does not grow each month as do the other areas of the hoof.
