A pair of canny inventors have launched the world's first running trainers designed specifically for horses.
Animal lovers Louisa and Charly Forstner came up with the novel product after years of fitting steel shoes to their horses' hooves.
The revolutionary clip-on shoes, called Megasus Horserunners, are made from shock-absorbing plastic materials and claim to make life more comfortable for both horse and rider.
Unlike steel shoes the £175-a-pair Horserunners move with the horse's hoof - and can be removed quickly to allow horses to strengthen their tendons and ligaments.
