This is a group of professional pitching shoes
specially designed to meet the needs of the serious player who specialize in the
"turn" style of pitching. They are named for the greatest Men's Horseshoe
Player of all time, 17 time Men's World Champion, Alan Francis.
Alan pitches his Signature Shoe, throwing a 3/4
reverse turn, a shoe that works great for all turns and especially well for
players who have a tight, wrap-around grip on the shoe.
The Bullseye is a wider bladed shoe similar to
the signature shoe in turning ability, but better for players who hold with a
looser grip or even a fingertip grip.
The All-On is a shoe that combines features from
three of the most popular turn shoes in history... it has the general shape of
the Ted Allen Horseshoe, the heavy weighted tips and sharp points of the
Imperial Horseshoe and a unique diamond plate style gripping surface that takes
the E-Z Grip Horseshoe concept to a whole new level!
The Legacy is is a flippable version of the
Signature shoe with some very unique features. It has the body of the ever
popular original Glory Horseshoe and the tips of the Signature shoe and is made
of a strengthened alloy that allows us to stamp it with a three year warranty...
In 1999, we went to now seven time Women's World
Champion, Sue Snyder, who was pitching our Bronco Horseshoe at the time,
and offered to make a custom flip shoe for her. The result was the Snyder
E-Z Flip Horseshoe, which hit the horseshoe world in 2000 and was our first new
shoe of the 21st century.
Sue went on to win a world title with that shoe
and in the mean-time, we came out with a second model, the Snyder E-Z Flip II,
which is the same shoe without the ringer breaker. Sue picked up that shoe
and won a world title with that one too! Her favorite is the original and
she has won numerous championships with both shoes and these two shoes have
since become the favorites among most of the flip pitchers out there.
We later developed the Snyder Flip-Grip, a
take-off of the Snyder II, for those players who wanted to see our new diamond
plate gripping surface and thumb positioner all on one flip shoe.
The Snyder-Watson model is the result of a
collaboration with Dan Watson, one of the greatest men flip pitchers of modern
times. This shoe is also a take-off of the E-Z Flip II. The
distinguishing feature on this shoe is that the rear thumb cleat is on the other
side of the shoe, making this a throw back design and a favorite of those who
prefer to flip with all three cleats down.

This line offers you three of the most unique and
innovative horseshoes ever made: the Mustang, Challenger and Stinger.
All three can be thrown equally well with the flip or turn style pitch, making
them great for team play. All three of these shoes feature double sided
cleats on the tips, making these the most universal shoes on the market...
These are the only shoes that truly and effectively merge the two worlds of flip
and turn pitchers in the sport of horseshoes... finally, we can all get along
using these shoes!

At first glance, this might look like a random group of horseshoe models with
not much in common between them. But the one thing they all have in common
is innovation and that's what Thoroughbred is all about. Each of these
shoes were cutting edge horseshoes when they were first designed. The
Imperial with its unque at the time ringer break and sharp, hardened tips, the
Six Shooter with its extra wide blades and huge hooks, the Big Foot modeled
similar to the very unique M & M shoe and the Glory with its center balancing
point concept were all very innovative ideas back in their day and we have
preserved them all here in this premier series of horseshoes.
