This model of shoe is fitted with a toe and two side clips, which can, if preferred or needed, be easily removed with a rasp, hoof nipper or electric tool. 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 whilst still allowing the hoof to function in a more natural way respond well to the medic blue. Sold in pairs!
