Horseshoe is a “fabricated product, normally made of metal, although sometimes made partially or wholly of modern synthetic materials, designed to protect a horse's hoof from wear.” According to Wikipedia, shoes are attached on the palmar surface of the hooves, usually nailed through the insensitive hoof wall that is anatomically akin to the human toenail, though much larger and thicker. Sometimes, they are glued. Steel and aluminum are the materials used in horseshoe, and sometimes, they may include the use of rubber, plastic, magnesium, titanium and copper. Polo, eventing, show jumping, and western riding events uses steel and aluminum are also used in horse riding because they are lighter.
