[RC] Query re: front end interference & an unfit horse - Mary Krauss

Basic question: If my 9 year old, overweight, unfit horse becomes slimmer and more athletic, is there a chance he'll quit paddling so much up front? I ask because, while the paddling itself is no big deal (quite common to his breed), he's been clipping his shoes off since I've put him back into training. (He rips one front shoe off by stepping on the side of it with the other front foot.) I don't recall his having had the same problem before, but he was younger, probably not even finished growing, and certainly less overweight a few years ago. I'd not considered his weight problem in relationship to the lost shoes until I read your supportive posts to Cherie regarding her new horse. Now I'm hoping there's hope that my horse's interference problem might fade away as he becomes stronger. Could it be true?
