Steel Full Rocker Shoe

Steel Full Rocker Shoe

Many horses have mismatched feet. One foot is usually narrower than the other. Our full rocker shoe fits wider, more rounded toes quite well, but it takes a bit of forging to fit a narrow foot. For this reason, we created the Steel Full Rocker shoe. This is a narrow version of the Full Rocker forged steel shoe. The new shape saves you valuable time and effort. Also, the narrow version is quite easy to open and accommodates a wider toe when indicated.
This versatile shoe can also be used as a back pattern shoe and is currently available in 6 sizes. Sizes FR1, FR2, FR3, FR4 FR5, come with nail holes and are unclipped. The FR6 comes with nail holes and tabs for pulling the clips.

This shoe is a very useful aid in treating injuries or diseases of the foot resulting from the tension of the deep digital flexor tendon. It can reduce stress on the navicular bone, bursa, and associated ligaments and reduce compressive forces on the corium of the sole, thereby promoting sole growth and a stronger, thicker wall. Mechanical properties can be further improved by forging more rocking action into the shoe.
The Drop Forge Full Rocker shoe is designed to deliver high-end mechanical breaking. The breaking point, or pivot point, of this shoe is located in the center of the shoe, allowing the horse to adjust its palmar angle on its own.

Horses with limited solar perfusion (blood supply) have little or no sole growth because there is a lack of sufficient nutrition in the cut line. By relieving tension deep in the digital flexors, the blood supply to the blades and soles of the feet is increased. This shoe provides the continuous self-adjustment the horse needs, even when stationary.

The Steel Full Rocker shoe also helps improve stiff sole growth and provides farriers and veterinarians with a new option for treating a variety of problems associated with thin and painful soles. Lateral X-rays are useful for placement of trim and footwear, as well as an aid in evaluating progress.
