Reply To: Soft Soles

Please for the love of god be careful. My horse has soft soles and we did nothing in the back, normal shoes for the front. The kid who was leasing him was galloping him in the field, when suddenly he fell breaking his coffin bone in two places because a rock when through his sole. This is not typical for normal horses. It almost killed his riding career. We tried to tough up his hooves and kept everything the same after his injury. But just last year another rock went up his sole, this time only bruising his coffin bone. The vet now requires that he wears pads to protect his coffin bone since he thinks that his soles are linked to a genetic issue. So whatever you do be careful because we use to make fun of twinkle toes and tried to do everything, until it almost ended his riding career.
