Analyse the gait
High-precision sensors digitally record the smallest hoof movements and timings in Landing, Stance, Breakover and Swing.
Quantify and compare
Monitoring makes it possible to detect deviations at an early stage. This enables preventive action (monitoring, early detection of movement compensation). Recovery/revalidation can also be closely tracked by comparing new measurements to previous measurements of the same animal. Left/right variations can be detected as well.
Performance improvement: objective monitoring of the horse not only
allows for injury prevention, but also
for improved performance. BLACK supports by providing insight into
the impact of interventions.
Cost savings: this prevention saves on the costs of veterinary interventions and long recovery periods during which the horse cannot be used for sport.
Communicate and share
BLACK facilitates fact-based communication instead of data interpreted by eye.
High-precision sensors (1140 samples per second) measure every subtle movement, including the high G forces resulting from the hoof’s explosive movement.
BLACK takes your skills to the next level
The hoof moves many times faster than we can observe with the naked eye. That’s why we’ve developed BLACK, the first and only mobile gait analysis system for farriers in the world. This tool enables you to monitor gait over time. High-precision sensors digitally record the smallest hoof movements and converts them into a 3D animation with overviews that are easy to interpret. Specially developed for the hoof, the motion sensors collect all relevant data on landing, breakover and swing phase. Discover the power of continuous feedback on intervention and follow the development of movement over time. BLACK visualises what the naked eye cannot see and a camera cannot record. See the unseen.

Ever since I began working as a farrier, I was able to try out various models. For me, the Warrior is without a doubt the best horseshoe I have ever used. The shape of the hind shoe is simply perfect!
The toe is wide enough to allow shearing. The nail holes are formed excellently and well suited for small nails. Sometimes, I have to use E-Slim 3 in no. 3, and it always stays perfectly in place. It is a valuable product, namely for German or Dutch horses, which have small feet and little hoof wall.

The original shape of the Warrior horseshoe is very close to the shape I prefer for my horseshoes and can easily be modified on the anvil. The nail holes are suitable for small nails and are always properly drilled. The finish always looks good, it is pleasant to work with, and there are no scales that will rip your hands open!

I think Werkman does a fantastic job! They ask us what we think about the shoes we’re using. They take the answers serious and apply our suggestions to their products.

Werkman Horseshoes is a very modern company, they take their development and service very seriously and don’t lose their personality in the process. The models are perfect for the high end show jumpers that I shoe. Especially the Warrior Special. I love working with that particular shoe.
Great service for the farrier!
Mitch Taylor (USA)
The quality of the shoes are an extension of the way the Werkman family runs the factory. The shoes are always cutting edge; fit and ware are better than any other factory made shoe.
I’ve known the Werkman family for 15 years and the value and effort that they put in their family is the same as they put in their factory. This is also how they treat their workers; you can tell that they are happy. The Werkman family cares for their workers like they care for the development and production of the shoes.
The Werkman family is down to earth and very interested in what farriers want and what the horse needs.

Great shoes! Easy to fit and the wide variety of models makes it easy to find a shoe for every foot. The shoes are forged out of high quality steel and very well finished which makes it easier to do a good job on the foot.
It’s clear that Werkman has a solid research behind their models.
Olivier Smink (The Netherlands)
The shoes have a perfect finish, the nail holes, clips and models are just what I need to keep my customers satisfied.
Werkman Horseshoes first turns to the farrier in order to find out what their demand is and then moulds all these wishes into the one perfect shoe.
Change up the sentence- As a farrier, working with Werkman Horseshoes is always a pleasant experience. I always feel appreciated and welcomed; it’s those little extras they do for their clients that makes all the difference to me.
