:rant:NO.NO.NO dont have anything man made on the feet, putting shoes on which are built up will totally alter your horses natural way of going and will do damage.
I was involved with the fitting of running shoes on runners in the early 80s wanting to run marathons. The problem was finding shoes which did not hinder their natural running gait.
I always advised a softer soled shoe for people who landed on their inner or outer edges of their foot, so that they were not being restricted and hindered by a solid soled shoe.
If you fit a shoe that has a false landing edge it will cause damage to the horses leg over time
There are ways of stopping boots moving or twisting, its just a case of finding the way.
Willi is toe in and clumsey, his boots always twisted round. It was just a case of trying different ways to stop the movement. I cracked it with pads and wraps plus a larger boot to take all the extra stuff. they never moved.
The problem is farriers are so blinkered in what they do they cant see the bigger picture.
