anyone used Cytek horse shoes??

I was watching a video about these new horse shoes. I like to keep my horse barefoot and more natural, but I might end up shoeing him for working ranch horse team.

Really interesting video. I wonder how many miles the shoes last and how much they cost?

Interesting. I am wondering about thrush though since you can't clean the sole of the dirt that collects in there?

If you have a competent farrier who can follow to the letter the guidelines on our YouTube Cytek Application video, your horse will be well shod. However we recommend your farrier has some one to one training from a certified Cytek farrier. As for price here in the UK the average price is 75 for four shoes, once your horses hoofs have recovered to full robust function depending on work load, shoeing intervals average 10-12 weeks. You will also have the horse moving properly eliminating veterinary expenses related to biodynamic issues.

The price is in British Pound, so 118 dollars. Wonder if they have a farrier in SC? 10 to 12 weeks would be nice! Love to find someone that uses these. I wonder about thrush, too.

yeah, im sure you can email them and ask, they got to me within like 24 hours or less. and any farrier can do it really, but they have to be like a smart ferrier and they say its helpful if they take a 1 day course on how to do it since its a totally different process and all that or something but their email is

here is their email

Thrush is a blood supply issue long toe stretched frog reduced blood supply = necrosis inside frog which develops into thrush . Nothing at all to do with owners, no matter how clean the foot .

That's what they emailed back about thrush and their shoes

I have never heard of Cytek shoeing, it looks interesting.

My farrier does natural balance shoeing, which I have noticed makes a HUGE difference. My bratty mare had a weird break over in regular shoeing. She was always short stepping in corners and tripped a lot. I switched her to natural balance and I couldn't get over the difference. Her movement has become smooth, her feet look so much better and she doesn't short step at all anymore. Natural balance shoeing is recommended by the lameness specialists I have talked to over the last few years.
