As a Keepsake of a Special Horse

As horse owners and lovers ourselves we know that sometimes you would like to have a creation made from your own horse’s shoes. This may be from the shoes worn at a significant show or event as a lasting reminder, they may make a lovely personal gift for someone who adores their equine friend, or you may like to have them as a sentimental keepsake after a much loved horse has passed away.

This ‘Full Set’ piece can be made from either front or hind shoes. You can personalise your piece with names or dates if you would like.

The process

Every shoe is heated to remove rust and carefully cleaned by hand. Generally toe and side clips are removed as well as nails. Every now and then a nail is extremely reluctant to leave and in these instances we allow them to stay, it is after all part of the character of the shoes! We buff and polish each shoe gently to remove dirt but retain marks of wear. Personalisation is added now, positioning of the hand stamping may vary according to the size and type of shoe.

Each shoe is then welded into formation and buffed and polished once more. A clear sealant is then applied to protect from rust. We recommend keeping your piece indoors and away from damp.

Adding an oak base

Our bases are made from solid oak, 15mm thick that we can stain in either a Light Oak tone or Medium Oak, you can select which you would prefer from the drop down menu. The horseshoe is securely bolted to the Oak Base. The beautiful tones and grain of the wood set off the gunmetal silver shade of the shoes to perfection. Size of Oak base may vary slightly to accommodate the size of horseshoes used.

A Note on Personalisation

Our personalisation is hand stamped onto the horseshoes. We would generally place text to the left inside edge of the left shoe, central on the central shoe and to the right on the right shoe. However makes and types of shoe vary and if using your own shoes we may need to make adjustments to this if there is not much space available. We would discuss this with you before proceeding.
