Cheltenham Festival celebrates its 100th anniversary. It is one of the most prestigious events in the horse racing calendar. Model Louise Dainton, from Essex, posed on a turf catwalk wearing the human horse shoes and was surprised by how comfortable the shoes were. She said:’They are really comfortable and almost make you feel like you want to get on the track and gallop down the final furlong. ‘I’m not sure they’re for everyone, but I definitely would like a pair of these hooves.’
Three pairs will be sold for £1,300 shoes each, with proceeds going to the Prostate Cancer Charity. A carbon-fibre hoof and up to 5,000 individual horse hairs make up the £1,300 shoes which were created by a team of fashion designers.
