Standardbred Race Horses

Best Shoes for the Job:
Kerckhaert Flat Steel (TNC)

These shoes are a typical choice to train horses down in (lower time). They are mainly used on the back feet of both Trotters and Pacers. It is also an option for red clay track surfaces. The fullering in the branches gives a little extra traction advantage over a flat shoe that only has nail holes.
