KAWELL horseshoes reduce the impact of vibrations (anaverage of 8.53% every step) thanks to Shock Absolut, their built-in absorption capacity.

Another protective feature of our horseshoes is how they interact with the habitat of the animal. Horses are always standing on straw or wood shavings dampened by their own organic emissions, which creates a perfect breeding ground for microorganisms that can cause rot and decay. Horseshoes made of KAWELL alloy naturally react chemically and produce copper salts, which have bactericidal and fungicidal properties that inhibit the proliferation of these bacteria and fungi. Doctor Mario Acuña Bravo, our consultant and a University of Chile veterinarian specializesa in horseshoes, verified these attributes while directing the research leading to the implementation of our product.
