Shoeing The Sport Horse
Today's blogs features an important topic - shoeing the sport horse. When it comes to shoeing dressage horses, hunter and jumper horses and eventers, each of them require a different set of needs, with balance being a high priority.
Scott Gregory explains, "All horses should be trimmed with a well-balanced foot and smooth edges. This is an absolute necessity for any horse, but especially an active one. Many lameness issues are affected by the trim."
