This invention relates to pads; for use with
horseshoes and primarily concerns pads of the
notch. or recess IS in the inner face of the corresponding side [3 of the shoe.

Adjacent the end I’! each spring arm has an
the shoe, whilst the latter is secured to the horse’s integral lug l9 bent at right-angles to the width
‘ of the strip to engage between the upper surface ‘ 5
5 foot and without affecting the shoefastenings.
In my prior Patent ‘No. 1,911,187, retaining of the shoe and the under surface of the horse’s
. v
spring arms secured. to or provided on‘the pad foot as shown in. Figure 3.
A transverse notch ‘l is formed substantially
were adapted for detachable engagement with
a kind which can‘ be applied to and detached from
the sides of the shoe in an adjustable manner,
10 but it was not easy to attach the pad securely
to shoes of different sizes and in somecases the
effectiveness (of the retaining». spring arms ‘de
pended upon‘ the degree of accuracy with which
the sides of the pad vhad been shaped to ?t the
.15 particular size of shoe.
The object of the present invention is to pro
vide a generally improved vconstruction which
will be more readilyapplicable to shoes of di?er

The construction illustrated in'Figures 1 and

able'material havingqa carrier plate 9 -of thin
metal bent over at ‘its edges I!) to engage in
grooves or recessesil I ‘in the "sides of the -pad,'the

the ?exibility of the strip so as to facilitate ap
plication to the shoe.
With this construction the retaining member
5can be separated from the pad whilst the latter
is in position and the engagement of this mem- :15
her with the shoe is independent of the engage-
’
ment between the latter and the pad, being also
independent of the length of the pad.

When in position the retaining member ?ts

The‘strip has an integral lug l5 bent to project

In constructions where the pad itself has, to
:be cut down to ?t the size of the shoe, it is un
necessary to shape the pad accurately to ?t the U45
sides of the shoe, since the retaining member
engages with’ the shoe independently of‘ the
length of the pad.

with outwardly bent end 24 and integral pro
jection 25 of construction similar to the parts
above described with reference to Figures 1 to 3.
In addition each part 20 has an arm 26 bent
to engage between the carrier plate and the
horse's foot with a further arm 21 projecting
at right angles to the arm 26 and adapted to
extend transversely across the foot substantially
parallel to the length of the pad.

‘
‘
The arms 21 of the two parts project towards
one another and engage one into each end of
the helically coiled spring 2|, which latter thus
forms a resilient connection between the two
parts of the retaining device and presses ‘these
15 parts away from one another so as to engage
the ends 24 ?rmly in the notches l8.
The arms 21 are cranked out of the plane of
the part ?tting against the side of, the pad to
provide space for the accommodation of the
20 spring 2| as will be seen from Figure 4.
,
Each ‘arm 21 ‘has projecting lugs '28 adapted
to engage‘ between the coils of the spring to
provide a positive connection between the latter
and the arms 21 and this engagement is ‘also an
25 ‘adjustable “one and the effective length of the
connection between the two parts 20 can be
varied by rotating one or both parts relative to
the spring to turn the projections 28 around dif
ferent coils of the spring.
'
Each part 20 has a further arm or lug 29 bent
to extend substantially parallel to the arm 26
and adapted for engagement beneath the ‘bent
over edge In of the carrier plate so that ‘when
the retaining member is in position ‘it is located
positively upon the padlby the engagement of the
two arms 26 and 29 one on either side of the
carrier plate as is shown in ‘Figure 5.
The retaining device can be applied whilst the
pad is in position by engaging the arms 26 and
.40 '29 of each ‘part 20 with the carrier plate and then
springing the arms 2-3 of the two parts of the
retaining device into engagement with the notches
7 l8 as described with reference to Figures 1 to -3.
‘."By suitable adjustment of the connection "be
tween the spring 2| and the arms 21 of the "two
partsthe spring 2| can be compressed during the
application of the retaining device sufficiently to
ensure that the force of the spring vholds the
two parts of the retaining device in engagement
with the shoe to prevent detachment of thepad
until the retaining device has been released.
By selection of a spring 2| of suitable length
and strength the retaining devicecan be adapted
for application to a shoe of any one of a number
of sizes with a suitable spring effect for any
particular size.
‘
With this arrangement the retaining member
can be separated from the pad,_ whilst the latter
is in position and can readily be adjusted to'?t
60 shoes of diiTerent sizes without necessitating al
terations in the parts of the member other ‘than
adjusting the effective length of the spring as
described above.
}
'
It is-unnecessary to observe extreme accuracy
65 in shaping either the pad or the retaining mem
ber to fit the sides of the shoe and the effective
ness of the engagement v‘between the retaining
member and the shoe is independent of the en
gagement between the latter and the pad or of
the length of the pad proper;
'
In order :to make the retaining strip ?exible ‘in
a vertical-direction so that it can‘bend up and
down with thepad, it may be weakened by slits,
notches or recesses ‘in its edges in suitable posi
tions, such as adjacent the lugs.
