Re: [RC] Shoe-pulling horse/Trailers - Sullivan

My farrier always leaves more shoe off the back feet; I always thought for extra support.  How much to you consider being too long...

both heel ends are often used on endurance horses

   Trailers on rear shoes with endurance horses surely do change the manner in which the horse unloads and moves his feet.
    Unfortunately, it also changes the dynamics of how the rear leg responds to that change...and it will show up in the hock, the stifle or lower back.
    I would recommend not using trailers or on rear shoes.
