Although the design of the Equi-Librium appears symmetrical some anatomical adaptations are made resulting in a definite left and right shape. The outside branch is slightly longer, with the nail holes punched a fraction coarser for optimum fitting and nailing on. The extra wide toe area is forged with a 2 dimensional convex curve allowing the horse to fluently breakover in any direction required. Special care was taken to ensure that the center of mass of the shoe matches the Center of Pressure (CoP) during mid-stance of the hose, thereby creating the perfectly balanced hoof.
The inside edge on the ground surface has a balanced concave section in order to reduce weight. This also assists in reducing the build up of mud around the shoe. Both the concave section and the crease do not run through the heels in order to improve support during landing and to provide a perfect base for stud holes. Having full heels also gives the farrier the option of forging a variety of innovative alternatives in the heel area of the shoe.
All dimensions and section have been optimized for each shoe size giving an optimal shoe fit and a limited shoe range. Broken edges, sole relief are standard features on all shoes.
The V-crease and nail holes provide a perfect fit with the specified Mustad nails which reduce the risk of shoe loss.
