Gorgeous and unique, these heart shaped hooks forged from used horseshoes make a charming addition to any home or yard. The hooks are sturdy and substantial. Perfect for bridles and headcollars, coats and scarves, dog leads or aprons. The possibilities are endless. Add an equestrian accent to your space! Priced per hook.
Each hook was a used horseshoe that has had clips and nails removed, then heated and cleaned by hand to remove dirt and grit while retaining marks of wear. They are then skilfully hand forged from one whole shoe into a heart. We do not cut and weld any of our Horseshoe Hearts, they are proudly made from one whole shoe. Sturdy, deep hooks with blacksmith’s scroll detail are added to create this artisan piece.
Smaller pony shoes are used to make the smaller hooks and larger horse shoes for the larger hooks. Please make your selection from the drop down menu.
Each hook is treated in several layers of clear sealant to protect from rust. We do recommend keeping your hooks indoors and away from damp. if put outside over time they will develop a rusty patina.
Forged from your own shoes
We are pleased to be able to offer the creation of these hooks from your own shoes. Please do measure the overall width of your horseshoe, from widest points, and chose the corresponding size of hook. It’s important you chose correctly for your own shoes as we do not cut bit off from large shoes to make them smaller. Larger shoes requires significantly more effort to forge them to shape than smaller pony shoes.
