Question
hello sir. in general, may i know what type of shoe do show jumping horses require?

Answer
HELLO ROHIT...THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION....

MY apology for being late !!  Long days working out-of-state...

In my practice in the past & colleagues of mine generally use steel(wide web) for more
support and base. In other words...give them MORE to land on safely.

Many of us; depending on ground conditions, will drill and tap the front shoes with screw
in caulks/studs for more traction if needed.

Best To You !!
