Heard of eggbar & heartbar, never heard of hunter though? Maybe just regular keg shoes?

According to Livestrong:
"Hunter shoes combine elements of both fullered and concave shoes to offer a much closer fit. According to Forge and Farrier, hunter shoes are extremely durable on both hard and soft surfaces. Their close fit makes it more difficult for them to be pulled off by another horse or rough terrain. The primary drawback of hunter shoes is that they offer no support and can actually cause injury to your horse's hooves if they are not properly fitted."
