Kings Plate Super Sound T/C
The Kings Plate Super Sound horseshoe was designed to improve the fitting to the hoof and has a whole range of features that enhance the performance of the horse.
The great front shoe shape means that the Kings Super Sound just drops on most thoroughbred feet. Slightly wider than the normal Kings Plate® Extra Sound, the Super Sound offers superior cover and support which eliminates sore heels.
The toe design has been evolved to improve break-over, while the patented Sole Relief continues to protect against sole pressure and bruising.
Super Pitch Plus has been introduced to the first three nail holes, giving extra pitch. This allows the farrier to drive nails higher into the hoof wall even on flatter feet.
The Super Sound front shoe also features the new Heel Elevation. The subtle heel elevation will help farriers to achieve better anterior / posterior hoof balance of the hoof, while the wider heel design will improve the fit when extra cover and support are needed. This also reduces stress to the back of the hoof.
The concave section continues to be deeper at the toe than at the heels, giving the shoe more traction at the toe and more support at the quarters.
The latest high quality aluminium gives improved wear.
The Kings Plate® Super Sound front shoe is perfectly complimented when fitted together with the Kings Super Sound hind shoe.
The new hind pattern Super Sound has been developed to compliment the front shoe. With left and right pattern hind shoes that just drops on saving time, plus the wider outside heel gives good cover to the foot.
The first three nail holes on the outside branch also have Super Pitch Plus. This makes nailing easier and results in stronger nailing and tighter clenches.
The hind shoe has a slight bevel in the toe, with a strong Radius clip, which is important on the hind shoes to stop them from spreading.
The inside branch and heel is nicely bevelled to reduce brushing with the opposite limb.
The foot surface has the standard Super Sound features including sole relief and a grip pattern with a dull finish to help keep the shoe in position. While the heels are smooth and shiny to allow heel expansion.
Super Sound plates are quick and easy to fit. Farriers notice that after fitting Super Sound plates the hooves become stronger and healthier.
