A bookmaker called Betfair has released a line of synthetic hoof-shoes as a charity fundraiser. They cost £1,300 a pair, and sport carbon fibre hooves with horsehair uppers.

Louise Dainton, 25, from Essex, who posed on a turf catwalk wearing the human horse shoes, said: "They are really comfortable and make you feel like you want to get on the track and gallop down the final furlong.

"I'm not sure they are for everyone, but I definitely want a pair of hooves."
