Our Original Horseshoe Heart. Skilfully hand forged from one whole used horseshoe. Crafted with care to retain wear marks and character of it’s old form combined with simple, clean lines of the new. Hand stamped personalisation is available on the arches of the heart, for names, dates or phrase to make your heart extra special and unique to you.

The Process

We can create these stunning hearts from your own horse’s shoes or use shoes from our own stock. Dirt, nails and rust are no problem, we can produce a lovely result even from shoes that are years old. Each shoe is first carefully cleaned by hand, and clips and nails are removed. Every now and then a nail head may be very reluctant to leave a shoe and so it remains part of the heart. They are then hand forged over an anvil. The process doesn’t end there, the hearts are rasped and buffed to removed any sharp edges and if required personalisation is hand stamped now. Each shoe has it’s own story and we aim to retain this in the completed heart. Every Heart as unique as the shoe it was forged from.

A Precious Keepsake

A heart crafted from the shoe of your own special equine friend makes a fabulous gift for any equestrian and a meaningful momento of a horse who has passed. We take great care of your own shoes, contacting you to let you know of their safe arrival and dispatching them back to you via a tracked and signed service as we know just how precious these items can be. We can use bar shoes to make Horseshoe Hearts, however they will look slightly different to our Hearts made from standard shoes. We never cut or remove any part of a shoe to make a Horseshoe Heart and so using bar shoes will give a slightly different shape and will retain a likeness of it’s original shape.

Weddings & Anniversaries

Our Original Horseshoe Heart makes a unique wedding or anniversary gift, as a twist on the traditional gift of a horseshoe to the bride or to represent iron or steel for a six or eleven years of marriage.
