Shoeing for Western Horses

Best Shoes for
Western Pleasure Riding

Kerckhaert Aluminum Triumph

This is a very popular shoe for the western pleasure horse as well as the hunter. They are available with or without clips. The theory is aluminum, a very light material, helps to keep the foot low to the ground and moving in a controlled manner.


  • High grade aluminum that provides good wear and strength with an optimum front shape
  • Commonly used by the Western Pleasure market and the Hunter and Thoroughbred shoer
  • Well-placed nail holes allow for good nailing and choices when the wall is less than perfect
  • Built in sole relief
  • Shoes are symmetric
