I haven't seen something like that. I did see ones shaped like a mushroom, so they put pressure on the frog. The ones I saw were for quarter cracks.
Im assuming these would be for frog pressure as well.

Looks like some kind of variation of a heartbar shoe to me?

I agree, looks like a modification of the heartbar shoe

I feel as though it's a variation of heartbar shoes for all over pressure, both frog and sole. I imagine the horse has poor frogs and an issue with the sole that would make it sensitive (the name is escaping me at the moment D: ).

I've seen those used a lot with standardbred race horses. It is a bar shoe and, if I remember right, helps to distribute the impact on the whole foot to take the "sting" away. Standies race and train on pretty solid ground.

Thank you so much to everyone

What's the point of putting pressure, when there will already be enough pressure on the front feet every time the horse lands from jumping????? O.o
