Welcome to Ground Control Horseshoes
Ground Control Horseshoes are made of a durable polyurethane material (just like skateboard wheels are made of) providing improved traction, shock absorption, and comfort for your horse. They are perfect for trail rides, parades, driving, showing, and just about any other equine activity.
They are also therapeutic, offering horses comfort for problems with the following: ringbone, navicular, founder, and other lameness issues.
Since 1999, my unique horseshoes have been used on horses all over the world. I personally designed them and they are manufactured in Boerne, Texas, USA.
