Shoeing for Standardbred Race Horses

Best shoes for the Job

Kerckhaert Outer Rim Front


The Outer Rim is primarily used for racing on the stone-dust tracks in the Northeast US and Canada. It is most commonly used on Pacers but in recent years some Trotters have been using these in front as well. The additional traction of the aluminum and rim design is a primary reason for use of the shoe.
