The new Öllöv SoftStep
-With a rubber shell and a core of steel-
We love horses! We believe they deserve to have their full potential released by wearing the best possible shoes for health, comfort and safety.
Added comfort in every step, as well as a safe and stable grip. The horse simply feels more relaxed and able to perform its best. It´s about offering the chance to release the full potential of the horse.
Naturally, a rubber horseshoe absorbing shock and vibrations is more comfortable for both horse and rider. The horse is relaxed even on harder surfaces.
For over 20 years, the Öllöv rubbershoes have been outstanding for many different rehab situations, including for horses with laminitis.

”Several of my horses, both young horses and some of our top performing horses, have Öllöv rubbershoes and I feel the horses are happy and comfortable with them. The excellent and safe grip in stables and while transporting is a great added benefit that helps make horses calm and relaxed”.

“Everything is about respecting the horse, to create a relationship and teamwork without dominance”. “With Öllöv the horses feel much more relaxed on slippery surfaces. I can work with them without thinking about that they might slip. I travel a lot and go to different shows where the horses have to perform their best, and Öllöv SoftStep makes that possible. I have no doubt horses work better when they are relaxed and comfortable.”
Grand Prix Dressage – Denmark
Grand Prix & Grand Prix Special at WEG 2018, Tryon USA in Öllöv shoes
Representing both Öllov and the Danish National team in Dressage, Rikke Svane and her black Trakehner stallion Finckenstein TSF took part in the WEG 2018 in Tryon, North Carolina. As quoted by Rikke Svane, “The hoof quality has increased significantly on all my horses and I have also seen tremendous progress during training, as the horses feel more at ease and comfortable wearing the shoes, as well as performing better than ever”. The technology behind the shoes has also led to a better gait and more active hind legs. The SoftStep shoes are innovative, high-quality and phenomenal in every way.
Part of Team Sweden – Jumping
”I have Öllöv SoftStep on all my competition horses including the horses I jumped in 2 nations cups with and won Swedish Championship in 2019. The horses seem to enjoy the rubbershoes and are performing well with them. I see several advantages from them, horses are safe and stable on all different surfaces and we avoid slipping injuries. The shoes that are softer and wider than steelshoes, offer more surface to land on in each step, which I think is very positive. We don’t use any soles on the horses since we started with Öllöv and we have a lot less lost shoes.
“During all my years as a farrier many of my customers have asked for innovation when it comes to horseshoes. Many products have come and gone over the years and I have always wanted to try myself and form my own opinion. So after 6 months of trying the Öllöv SoftStep on my own horses I started recommending them to clients and now after almost 2 years I am still convinced of the benefits of the shoe. It offers great grip and it feels like horses appreciate the shock-absorption”
Combined driving – Sweden
Titles from: Swedish Championship, Nordic-Baltic Championship and European Youngster Championship
Team Strauss, a family where everyone competes in combined driving. Elise, Felix and Sofie, are all in the youngsters driving team of Sweden 2019. When driving, and having a pressure from behind due to quickly reduction of speed or in the need for a heavy push forward, it demands a lot of the horses trust and body-strength to handle. With a better grip and shockabsorption, it makes it so much better for the horses. We would say that, both us and our horses have better self-confidence with the grip and can perform more relaxed. And above all other positive things the horse’s hoofs grow better and we have had no drop shoes since we started using them!
