About Us

At the heart of every great company, there must be a passion for the business.  For generations, this passion has made Thoro’Bred Inc.  the number one choice in racing plates.  Family owned and operated since 1949, Thoro’Bred has been manufacturing the “World’s Finest Racing Plates” for over 67 years.

We manufacture more than 500 styles and sizes, all forged here in our factory located in Anaheim, California and use the highest grade of aircraft aluminum.  Thoro’Bred holds strong as the innovative leader in quality and design.  Our products are continually evolving with the input from highly respected farriers and veterinarians assisting our engineering department.  These experts study the intricate movement of the horse and each step in our manufacturing process is designed for optimal equine performance in speed, comfort, and efficiency.    Every level of excellence is carefully crafted into each shoe design.  At Thoro’Bred, our horseshoes, both aluminum and steel, will continue to advance with the latest research, design, and materials.

Thoro’Bred Inc. distributes horseshoes designed for various equestrian sports worldwide.  Many of the world’s most recognizable champions have crossed the finish line first while wearing our shoes.  Secretariat, Affirmed, John Henry, Cigar and the majority of Kentucky Derby winners in the past decade  including the current champions, American Pharoah and California Chrome have all competed in our racing plates. American Pharoah took the Triple Crown wearing our racing plates in all three events!  Thoro’Bred designs and manufacturers horseshoes for all racing, performance, pleasure, and corrective horseshoeing needs.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we have invested in a web based catalog and educational forum for both Farriers and Distributors alike. www.thorobredinc.com is your primary resource to find a wide variety of horseshoes, farrier tools, horseshoeing nails, therapeutics, hoof treatments, and much more. Visit our video and DVD library section for a wide variety of horseshoeing topics and valuable product information. www.thorobredinc.com is optimal for finding the best-suited equine products for your horseshoeing needs.
