RE: RE: Hoof abscess

My question was: With an obvious insult to the hoof what is the extreme
necessity of riding this horse in a competition.

Your response answers the question with a question so I shall respond in

Is the welfare of the horse such that you find more importance in
competition than in assuring complete healing of an infection?

Incidentally, the preamble states; "While the AERC assumes that most
participants are responsible and caring, it is recognized that a highly
competitive sport needs regulation"! Need I say more?

If the horse isn't in pain what would stop the horse from being able to
compete in a ride? Some damage to the hoof wall, I doubt it.  i'm sure it
would be best to try and keep it clean, maybe put some gauze and vetwrap
around it, then wrap duck tape.  As far as putting a shoe on it I am sure
could refer you're question best to your farrier.
