When did we start shoeing our horses?

    Sometime during the first century in Rome, people began to shoe their horses using sandal-like apparatuses to preserve their hooves as they trod over recently laid roads.  Before that though, horsemen in Asia equipped their steeds with hide and plant booties in order to maximize their utility over a long period of time.

    After the Romans and other ancient civilizations, modern horseshoes as we know them, were patented by Henry Burden in 1835. Since then, they have been continually improved and designed to be more humane.
