Western Pleasure

Best Shoes for the Job:
Kerckhaert Aluminum Comfort

The Western Pleasure show horse is usually in good footing in show rings or arenas and doesn’t require the additional width and thickness of the trail and ranch horse. Horses are usually shod with light shoes, even aluminum up front, to minimize the “action” and help keep the foot movement low to the ground.
