The Aluminum Natural Balance® Shoes are used for a wide variety of disciplines ranging from hunter & jumpers to gaming & speed event horses. The aluminum NBS have been used with success for training on the race track, and have shown improved times and less fatigue and interference on endurance rides. Show horses and rodeo horses find the wide-web aluminum to be beneficial for traction, and the design helps keep the horses from interfering & forging. Lastly, when used in conjunction with a Natural Balance Pad and sole support impression material, minor chronic lameness problems can be effectively treated.
Natural Balance Unclipped Aluminum
- There is no wear plate in the shoe, therefore the toe can wear back as the foot grows in length. This allows the foot to stay in "Natural Balance" through the shoeing period. This feature sets the aluminum NBS aside from most steel shoes.
- Wide-web, rolled toe shoe which offers maximum support to the hoof.
- The toe portion of the shoe is reinforced and offers greater mass which means more material for wear
- The arched roll at the toe allows the horse easy access to his individual position for breakover
