Farrier Product Distribution Inc. (FPD), the largest wholesale distributor of horseshoe supplies in the US and Canada, has announced the introduction of a new line of horseshoes; designed and produced in Holland by Kerckhaert Horseshoe Co.
The Ranger Series will launch with the first shoe, called the Ranger Lite, in November of this year. Made for the American market, the Ranger Lite is a versatile, light shoe, designed for both general work and pleasure riding. Building on Kerckhaert brand recognition and popularity, this shoe competes, in both price and quality, with similar styles currently available in the market.
“In response to requests from the American farriers, we developed the Ranger Lite, the first shoe in the Ranger Series,” says Martin Kerckhaert of Kerckhaert Horseshoe Co. “The Ranger Lite is an ideal shoe for active work and general pleasure riding horses in the US. Farriers asked for a shoe that included high quality steel for longer wear and our popular v-crease for better fit. This is a shoe that meets all of their expectations for quality, wear and price.”
The shoes will be distributed through the FPD dealer network. “With our distribution capabilities and a product that meets the highest quality standard for the industry, we are certain this new series — and the Ranger Lite, in particular — will be well-received among the farriers. We anticipate introducing additional styles in 2015,” says Dan Burke, president of FPD. “The response has been positive from farriers in the initial sampling and testing phase of this launch.”
