☮ Horse shoes for humans ☮

Shoes made in the style of real horses' feet and legs and complete with genuine horse hair are to go on sale at the Cheltenham Festival.

The knee and ankle-length zip-up hoof shoes were commissioned by betting company Betfair to celebrate 100 years of the festival, which starts tomorrow.

The horseshoes are being sold for £1,300 a pair, with all proceeds going to charity.

Each shoe is made using an imitation carbon-fibre hoof and up to 5,000 individual horse hairs stitched into a knee-length (55cm) or ankle-length (25cm) design.
