Royal Kerckhaert Kings Plate ES (Extra Sound) horseshoes
The Kings Plate Extra Sound is regarded as the favourite aluminium race plate by farriers and trainers worldwide because of the comfort for the horse.
The front shoe is the ideal shape for any modern thoroughbred racehorse as it conforms to the natural shape of the hoof, making it easy to fit. The wider section offers more cover and support to the hoof while the rounded edges reduce the risk of injury or losing shoes.
The patented Sole Relief reduces pressure and concussion to the sole when the hoof is under extreme stress while galloping. A unique scooped concave section, designed by Kerckhaert, gives the horse better grip as the shoe cuts into the surface.
The coarseness of the nail holes perfectly matches the natural thickness
of the hoof wall.
The hind shoe is the easiest aluminium plate to fit. The specially designed left and right pattern is based on anatomical and biomechanical principles understood by the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory. These principles can be found back in many of their horseshoes.
The outside branch is slightly longer and wider for better cover and support, whilst the inside branch is tapered for close fitting to avoid brushing. The wider section gives more cover and also gives much better shoe wear which is why it is called Extra Sound.
