Fully fullered front

Richard Ellis demonstrates how to build a fully fullered front shoe, with a hammer drawn clip from 12 inches of ¾ by 3/8 flat bar steel.  This shoe would traditionally be fitted to a ride and drive horse, the fullering   provides some traction on hard surfaces and helps to lighten the shoe for the ridden horse. Being forged from flat barstock allows the shoe to stand up to the wear and tear associated with driving horses.  This shoe forms part of the element 1.3 of  the National Occupational Standards in the U.K.   Running time 16mins 9secs
