THE INNOVATORS IN HOOF CARE
Blue Pegasos Pty Ltd provides a large range of shoe types and shoe accessories. All products can be easily customized to the individual needs of your horse.
The TRANSITION shoe (grey) is the hardest shoe, suitable for hooves that require some extra support with the advantage of helping horses adjust when changing from metal shoes.
The JOINT SAVER shoe (orange) is a medium hardness shoe, slightly softer in composition to relieve concussive related stress and strain. The shoe is particularly good for hard working horses at risk of joint issues such as arthritis.
The MEDIC BLUE (blue) is the softest of the shoe grades. This shoe is suitable for most riding applications with the added benefit of being designed for therapeutic treatments. Laminitis and other common pathologies that require support while still allowing the hoof to function in a more natural way respond well to the Medic Blue.
It is recommended that you try the different grades until you find which one suits your horse and your activity. Any questions don't hesitate to contact us.
The two main shoe styles are described as:
CCC - This shoe has two side clips and one toe clip which can be removed if preferred.
RCC - This shoe has two side clips but instead of a toe clip the shoe has a roll or ramp at the toe for a faster break over. This can be removed with a rasp if desired.
Comparison of TERRAFLEX™ Polyurethane Horse Shoes to...

Applying TERRAFLEX™ shoes is less time consuming, with no anvil work, and they are easier to nail as they are translucent.
You don’t have to worry that the nails will pull through the material. Use BH 5 or E Head nails in regular or slim for a smaller hoof and clinch them well. The unrestricted nailing positions and wide web provide more versatility when shaping to the hoof.
No expensive tools required, although the nailing and clinching tools do make application easier.
Our shoes are easy to modify to the individual hoof as needed. Any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
