Trail & Ranch Work

Best Shoes for the Job:
Kerckhaert Standard Rim

Rim styles are popular when more traction is desired. The effect of dirt filling in the creases and working dirt against dirt provides considerable traction. This is especially helpful for working ranch horses and horses asked to do a lot of turns at speed.
