About Monobloc Horseshoes
MonoBloc shoes feature a rolled front edge for a comfortable break over process helping to keep future hoof and leg problems to a minimum. These shoes will roll with good protection of the sole and adequate heel support. In addition, the absence of a steel wear bar encourages the shoes to have a natural and superior wear pattern. For the farrier, the solid 6061 Aluminum structure allows for an easily malleable shoe for a quick and accurate fitting. Our unique counter-sunk and beveled topside nail holes allow for accurate nailing with multiple pattern options.
“We set out to create a new generation of Aluminum Horseshoe incorporating the input from top international farriers then them crafting here in the USA from solid 6061 T6 Aircraft Grade Billet Aluminum. The MonoBloc Sport Aluminum Horseshoes offer high-performance in a stylish and ultra-lightweight design.”
David Shano – Owner of American Equus
“I been working with American Equus MonoBloc Aluminum horseshoes for three months and am consistently impressed with how well made they are. The design is forward thinking and really takes a horse’s natural movement into consideration. Also, because I work on a lot of horses in Florida, where conditions can be more wet than normal, I appreciate the anodizing process that helps prevents fungus growth.”
Jason Phillips – Professional Farrier
