While the rivalry between New Zealand and Australia is legendary, this is one exciting new development which our friends across the ditch are thrilled to share and many in the NZ equine industry have already expressed their eagerness to take full advantage of!

Launched recently in Australia, Costin Horseshoes intend to revolutionise horse shoeing. They’re throwing down the gauntlet to old guard by defying preconceived ideas and opinions with what many are already saying is the most progressive and advanced horseshoe available across the world.

Leading Australian Master Farrier, Steve Costin, has responded defiantly to the naysayers and redefined horse shoeing by creating his own plastic horseshoe with clearly unique design features (patent pending) and with significant benefits across the horse industry.

  • Farrier benefit from the time-saving benefits
  • Owners benefit from the cost-saving characteristics
  • Breeders benefit from the safeguards afforded by the design
  • Trainers benefit with increased performance
  • Riders benefit with greater confidence
  • And most critically, the horses benefit with improved comfort, condition and general wellbeing.

While only relatively new on the market, the Costin Horseshoe is already receiving high praise and has already been both acclaimed and approved by John Crowley, one of Australia’s leading veterinarians, who said “just about the perfect horseshoe..Steve’s done a great job with the design of this horseshoe..the Costin Horseshoe gives plenty of sole protection..the Costin Horseshoe has more give in it and it is much wider..I’ve seen some people try and make plastic shoes but not like this shoe..the Costin Horseshoe would absorb a lot of the vibration and it would mould with the horse’s foot a lot better.”

I've just inspected the latest version of the Costin Horseshoe and it's just about a perfect horseshoe.
The shoe gives plenty of sole protection, it is thin horseshoe so it doesn't stand the horse off the ground too much.
It's got three clips - a toe clip and two side clips. These clips can be cut off, if required. It's got the
nail holes set nice and wide so you're not going to prick them. well. The shoe has got a multitude of uses and Steve
has made it out of a very good polyurethane material. I can't see any reason why these Costin Horseshoes won't
be useful for virtually everyone who's trying to shoe horses with normal feet and also, with problems.

We have been trialling Steve Costin’s new plastic shoes for the last 2 years on our yearlings throughout their sales preparation
and have been very happy with the quality and performance of the shoes.

I have ridden and raced racehorses for over 50 years. I am also involved with polo horses. My son, Edward plays polo. I have found
Steve Costin’s new plastic horseshoes nice and light. They are truly fantastic. I have only used them on one mare so far
but can’t wait to use them on all my horses. I also keen to tell polo people and my friends about them and my son is also
keen to try them.
