Price Adjustment

Unfortunately, "Duplo" hasn't remained unaffected by the worldwide impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic. Both basic materials of our composite horseshoe have become so much more expensive (almost 40% for steel, about 20% for synthetic material) that we are regrettably unable to maintain our current prices. Our suppliers have informed us that this trend is going to continue; there is no end of the price increase in sight. We are therefore forced into adjusting our prices by about 10% and hope for your understanding.

Duplo Basic

Please note that the Duplo Basic has now left the Duplo Innovations range. We thank you all for your positive feedback and are happy that our regular Duplo range has become a "new member". Also within the regular range the Duplo Basic Clipped and Profiled remains a perfect alternative at a very attractive price-point.

Go Green!

Several Duplo models are now not only available in the (orange) Standard version but also in the (green) Extra version. The synthetic material used for Extra horseshoes is slightly harder and ideal for the summer time: It is more immune to heat and remains abrasion-resistant even during higher temperatures. In addition, we are happy to report that Duplo Horseshoes are no fire hazard in draught areas!

We are back - and we have good news for you!

Another step ahead: We are happy to present our relaunched website to you and we have good news for you!
During the last months, we have had intense discussions with the inventor of the Duplo Composite Horseshoe - Hubert Frank - in Germany and my colleague, Dr. Katie Curry, who is responsible for the distribution of Duplo Horseshoes in the US. The vision of Hubert Frank is to make the Duplo Composite Horseshoe available worldwide. Together, we have achieved some improvements in the import and shipping procedures that lead to a price reduction of Duplo Composite Horseshoes in Canada!
Plus: Thanks to a startup support of Duplo Germany, we are able to ship your orders free of charge for orders of more than 100.00 CAD. Below this amount you will be charged 10.00 CAD.

Duplo Horseshoes are being sold by the piece

Please note that (unless otherwise indicated) our products are being sold be the piece because some horses have different hoof sizes or different hoof shapes. That way, you can individually choose fitting horseshoes.
