Heart-bar shoes can be used to help treat laminitis and flat feet. The shoe mimics the unshod foot, as the frog and wall are restored to a natural pattern of weight bearing. The support offered to the coffin bone is crucial for speedy recovery and realignment.
The Jim Blurton Heart Bar shoe not only provides superior support for the horse but also gives the farrier many added benefits to make the fitting as simple and quick as possible.

This shoe offers support to the heel and frog spreading the weight evenly throughout the foot. This shoe has a bar that runs directly between the two heels, enlarging the ground-bearing surface at the back of the foot. The shoe is ideal for competition horses, as the bar does not protrude excessively at the back of the foot.

The straight bar shoe incorporates a roll toe and is safed off at the heel. Side clips are standard and they have a countersunk position for stud holes. Unique to these shoes they incorporate pitched nail holes providing a different angle for each nail making it easier to nail on.

The Egg bar is an oval shaped shoe and is usually used on horses with pre-navicular and navicular disease. The frog is not supported, as the bar extends behind it, which can be a problem when used with very flat feet, as the frog will "drop through" because it is unsupported. In this case, a heart-bar shoe may be better.

The Graduated three degree wedge bar shoes have been designed to assist in the realignment of the HPA. This shoe has a set down bar which makes it easy to fit on a foot with a prominent frog. Used in conjunction with Vettec soft pad material or an equivalent it is an ideal shoe for cordal lameness. This shoe offers a more stable platform for the horse than a wedge pad increasing the stability and reducing the flex in the foot. All shoes are quarter clipped, have stud holes, seated out boxed off with a rolled toe. They have a bolder rounder shape ideal for flat footed horses. The shoe has been pre drilled with 3/8 stud holes and comes with superb pitch in each nail hole.

The shoe has a considerably enlarged heel-bearing surface and is usually applied to the front feet with a rolled toe. Recently, egg-bar shoes have been fitted to hind feet, as the extended heel surface gives support to horses with hock problems.
