Hooves Ready for Adventure
In the wild, horses naturally maintain their hooves. Domesticated equines often need external assistance to adapt to their non-natural environment. Rich and complex, the work of a farrier precisely involves maintaining and protecting the hooves of our horses. A horse needs trimming and shoeing every 6 to 8 weeks. We have all the articles and accessories you need for the different stages of farriery:
- Trimming: Essential for the horse's locomotion, trimming is the art of cutting, trimming, and rasping the hoof horn to balance it. Michel VAILLANT offers tools designed by experts: hoof knives, hoof testers, rasps, hoof nippers, hoof picks, brushes, mallets, etc.
- Shoeing: Shoeing is not mandatory but highly recommended on a case-by-case basis. Hoof picks, shears, clench groovers, and fuller tools contribute to protecting horses' feet from infections and injuries, as well as preventing horn wear.
- Shoes, Nails, and Plates: Regardless of the equestrian discipline you practice, your horse will require equipment tailored to its needs. Thus, Michel VAILLANT provides you with the best nails, plates, steel or aluminum shoes, and orthopedic shoes, reliable and approved by renowned professionals.
