Discover premium hoof protection with the “Original” composite horseshoe, made in Germany. Our mission is to support your horse's optimal health and well-being by providing top-tier hoof protection. Just as humans vary, horses have unique hoof care needs. Whether they thrive barefoot, require traditional horseshoes, or benefit from the shock absorption of urethane horseshoes, we reject the one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we focus on personalized solutions for every horse.

Introducing a new pricing system

New Pricing System

Dear Duplo Customers,

despite the challenges that the global economy has faced in recent years, we have maintained our prices in Canada stable. Our goal has always been to support our customers locally, but now it's time for us to pass on the latest price adjustments from the German manufacturer.

We must therefore inform you that, after careful consideration, we will be adjusting prices for some horseshoes as of April 1st. The good news is that, after carefully examining our entire product range structure, the prices of some models will even be decreased.

After a thorough 4-year testing phase the Heavy Duty Shoes will now leave the Innovations test range. Don't miss the opportunity to benefit from discounted trial rates for orders placed before April 1, 2024.
Along with these price adjustments, we will update our general pricing system to provide farriers with the opportunity to benefit from our more favourable B2B prices. To benefit from our B2B conditions, please fill out the farrier list registration form and return it to us by email.

It is important to us to inform you of this in fairness now. This gives you the opportunity to place orders at the current prices. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to future collaboration.

Model Revision

The genesis of our alternative horseshoe, the "original" composite horseshoe, traces back over two decades. As with any evolving industry, there comes a time to integrate fresh insights and expertise into the craftsmanship. Throughout our journey, we've amassed invaluable knowledge – gleaned from years of equine application and close collaboration with horse owners and farriers alike. Concurrently, our manufacturing technology has undergone significant advancement, enabling the realization of once-unthinkable innovations. Nestled in the Bavarian Forest of Germany, our production facility orchestrates every aspect of production seamlessly, from precision tooling and injection molding to meticulous storage and global dispatch. Our endeavor to refine horseshoe designs commenced in mid-2020. However, immediate integration of all planned enhancements across all models remains impractical. These refinements encompass various adjustments, such as transitioning from four rows of knobs to uniformly two rows on the Extra Plus horseshoe, introducing a subtle concavity on the hoof side to alleviate sole pressure, optimizing nail hole placements, incorporating a plastic lip on Extra horseshoes, and unveiling a novel profile solution for contoured horseshoes. During this transitional phase, the version of horseshoe you receive depends on the model and size ordered. Some may receive the original iteration, while others will enjoy the updated design. Should queries arise, the Duplo Team stands ready to assist.
