How to Determine the Correct EponaShoe Size for Your Horse
On a freshly trimmed horse, use a ruler and measure the foot at its widest point to determine the width. Then measure the center of the foot from heel to toe to determine the length. If you like technical stuff, you can learn about Metron-Hoof software for trimmers and farriers.
If your horse’s measurements do not exactly match one of our sizes, do not worry.
EponaShoes can be nipped, rasped, or grinded up to 1/8” on each side (reducing shoe total width by up to 1/4"). The length of the shoe can be adjusted by taking up to 1/8" off the heel end and up to 1/4" off the toe end. More often than not, no shaping of the shoe is needed at all.
If you have a horse with difficult or different measurements, please call (805) 239-3505 for help determining which size to order.
Use our sizing chart to decide which size will best fit your horse. EponaShoes come in two different shapes. Wide “W” and Narrow “N”. Wide shoes are more round, while narrow shoes are more oval shaped.
