The Running Shoes for HORSES: Clip-On Plastic Covers Could Make for Happier Hooves

A pair of canny inventors has launched the world's first running shoes designed specifically for horses.

Animal lovers Louisa and Charly Forstner came up with the novel product after years of fitting steel shoes to their horses' hooves.

The clip-on shoes, called Megasus Horserunners, are made from shock-absorbing plastic materials and claim to make life more comfortable for both horse and rider.

Unlike steel shoes they move with the horse's hoof, and can be removed quickly to allow horses to strengthen their tendons and ligaments.
A set of four shoes can be pre-ordered for £175 ($219) from horserunners.com and they can be shipped to the UK.
