[RC] [Guest] Shock Absorbing Shoes - Ridecamp Guest
Patty Jackson brentnpatty@xxxxxxx
I am currently using the Equithotics on a mare who developed very
sore feet from the hard ground in my area. They have helped her
considerably in going more comfortably.
The only difficulties I have had with them are: my ferrier hates
having to put them on. They are a little more work. (but he does
a great job with them) Also, I have had some trouble due to my
horses being on a pasture which is watered with sprinklers
everyother day. The moisture gets trapped in causing soggy
soles, and rocks and mud pack into the center hole. This can
cause some bruising if not kept cleaned constantly. I do not
think any of this would be a problem is she were kept on dry
ground. These shoes are also a bit expensive.
For certain they have helped my mare continue to get A's on
soundness doing limited distance, but I may try the Ground
Control shoes next.
