The Modern World of Horseshoeing
Modifications of Duplo Composite Horseshoes

He is a certified and registered farrier and official farrier of the Veterinary Clinic Isernhagen (Germany). The focus of his work is the treatment of lameness and deformed hooves.

Development and Production of Duplo Composite Horseshoes

Hubert Frank has invented the Duplo Composite Horseshoes about 15 years ago and has continued improving them ever since. He is going to present the idea behind the Duplo, the development from the first draft to the current models and the production of the horseshoes in the Duplo Production Center in Bavaria.

After his training as metalworker, Hubert Frank worked in various fields (stainless steel processing, aluminium industry, hydraulics) and qualified as metalworker and welding expert. In 1994, he started his training as a farrier; today, he is a certified and registered master farrier.
