Default How exactly do horse shoes work with rear discs?

Honestly, I know it may seem a stupid question to some of you, but I am learning about the car. I was hoping for diagrams and videos on the net, but all I see are vids on how to change them etc.

What I want to know is, how exactly do they work together. I saw the horsehoe had a pad on the outer edges, but the rear disc faces out, so I dunno how it works.

There should be a rating system for the most stupid questions.

The shoes are only for the handbrake - it has disks on the back, and the shoes work in the centre of the disk

Imagine a top hat - the pads clamp either side of the lip of the hat, and the shoes squeeze out in the middle of the inside of the hat

If your rear disks are badly worn I'd change the disks and pads and shoes
