Be lucky

A beautiful freestanding Photo Frame created from a used, lucky horseshoe. Only used horseshoes are said to be lucky as the luck is struck into them with every footfall of the horse. The horseshoe is welded securely to a hammered steel base ready to be placed in the mantle, windowsill, shelf or bedside table. Where ever you like to keep your horse close.

Use your own horseshoes

Choose from using you own horse or pony’s shoes or have us create from our own stock of used shoes. Please do note that we do not change the shape or size of any horseshoes. We work with them to preserve their natural wear and character. If using your own shoes please bear in mind the internal size of your shoe will be the size photo you can fit in it. Each frame will come with a template to cut your photo to and a removable anti-reflective sheet that you may chose to use or not to your preference to protect your photo.

Handmade by UK artisans

Every shoe from our own used stock of shoes are from a by product of Barry’s farriery work. Each shoe has nails and clips removed. Rust, nail, dirt and even twisted shoes are not a problem. Every shoe is heated in the forge to burn away rust and hand cleaned. Shoes are then brushed and buffed and sealed to protect from rust.

English, dark havana leather is hand cut to size for every horseshoe individually and then hand stitched by Lucy Ellis Leatherwork to create a one of a kind photo frame.

Why not personalise it?

Hand stamped text is available to make your frame extra special and personalise your shoe with names, dates or a phrase. Please note if using your own horseshoe what text we can fit will depend on the size and type of shoe you have. Our letter stamps are 3mm tall and require a space of 1mm above and below so very small or very fine shoes may not be possible to personalise. We will contact you to discuss if there is any problem with personalisation.

A celebration of an event or show

Why not keep the shoes that have been worn to a show or event and send them to us to create a reminder of a special day. Perhaps personalise it with the show name and date?

A lasting keepsake

We always believe it’s worth keeping any shoes from your horse or pony, just ask your farrier for them, if the shoes are not being refitted we are sure they won’t mind you having them. Creating a frame from a passed horse or pony and displaying their photo within them makes for a wonderful keepsake.

Care of your Horseshoe Photo Frame

Each shoe is treated in sealant to protect from rust in an indoor environment. Please keep your shoe away from wet and damp. Keep clean by wiping with a soft, dry microfibre cloth. Keep away from detergents, cleaning agents and perfumes.
