Question
eggbar
eggbar  
hello sir. i want to become a successful racehorse trainer in my country. in general, would you suggest me to use a plain shoe or eggbar or heart bar shoe for horses?

Answer
HELLO ROHIT...

Plain shoe is best, anything with a crease/groove.
BARSHOES are only for lameness or injuries that "simply" need more support and healing time.
I could write pages in detail, but this is not the forum for this...

Wish You The Best !!
