Definitely can be done. Our farrier customed them, don't know if they pre-manufacture them. He had the cleats (I'm assuming for eventers?) and then created the threads in the sliders.
They were great. It allowed her to be out on pasture as well, though we separated her from the herd so she didn't tear up the others. (she was the boss then & still is at 24 lol!) I will say at that point, I couldn't get them out by myself (I was 14ish) they were pretty tough. There's a box of sliders in my tack room, I'll have a look and see if maybe they are still around to get a pic for you. They looked almost like a hex bolt with a point/grass cleat in the center.
