Racing Plates

Kings Steel Extra Sound Training Plate

The most advanced training plate on the market today, a front shoe with a wide section for cover and support. The heel design gives the farrier the option to fit the shoe safely while still giving width and support. The radius clip reduces the amount of hoof wall that needs to be removed while fitting. The nail holes are not only punched in the optimum position, but also have the correct pitch and coarseness. The foot surface of the shoe has a much needed sole relief, ideal for the modern thoroughbred hoof.

The hind shoe has the first drop forged left and right pattern hind training shoe.The longer and wider outside branch gives added support while the tapered inside branch allows the farrier to fit closely and safely, thereby reducing injuries such as brushing.

Also available 1/4 Clip Hind.

Kings Aluminium Race Plate Normal Strength

Extra nail holes provide options where they are needed most - a problem foot with limited nail placement. Now it is no longer a problem. The precisely shaped fronts and hinds mean that the shoe literally drops on. The inside edge of the foot surface is seated-out to avoid sole pressure. The rest of the foot surface is covered in small lines to give the plate grip against the foot. At the same time the heels are left smooth, which allows natural expansion at the heels when the foot is weight bearing.

Available unclipped, toe clipped fronts, toe clipped hinds and side clipped hinds.

Kings Aluminium Race Plate Extra Sound

Extra nail holes provide options when they are needed most - a problem foot with limited nail placement. Now it is no longer a problem. The precisely shaped fronts and hinds mean that the shoe literally drops on. The inside edge of the foot surface is seated-out to avoid sole pressure. The rest of the foot surface is covered in small lines to give the plate grip against the foot. At the same time the heels are left smooth, which allows natural expansion at the heels when the foot is weight bearing.

The nail holes are positioned coarser than the standard kings plate to produce strong nailing and the toe is designed a little flatter, to keep the toe short when fitting. Thats why its extra sound. The outside heel is wider to give the foot more cover and support. The inside branch is bevelled to reduce the risk of brushing and has a tapered inside heel for close fitting.

Available unclipped, toe clipped fronts, toe clipped hinds and side clipped hinds.

Kerckhaert Kings Degree Aluminium Plate

The new addition to the Aluminium Kings race programme is the Kings Degree Extra Sound. This graduated front degree shoe is perfectly designed so that it elevates the heel but the wide foot surface of the shoe reduces the problem of crushed heels. The toe is bevelled on the ground surface which helps breakover, this is very important when shoeing horses with low heels.

The Kings Degree hind has all the same unique features as the whole range of Kings Plates. There is wider ground surface in the heels for extra support and less pressure. This extra feature makes the difference.
