[RC] shoing angles - Mary Maynard

I perfer my horses to be between 53 and 55 degrees in the front. It can be hard to get the exact same angle on both front feet if one is clubed,  I will use a wedge pad if needed to get both front feet close to the same degree.
  I think 50 degrees is too low, you may heading for a injury. That being said, every horse is different so it is important to know what your horse's angles are. I ask the farrier to check every time they they work on my horses - I like to see a farrier who checks and rechecks as they are shoeing my horses. I also ask for them to measure toe lenght all the way around every time.
