RE: [RC] horse lamness question - Karen Standefer

Jennifer, NB has a new shoe (can only purchase direct from them right now) called the PLR (or Centre Fit) that is wonderful for horses with collateral ligament damage.  And, actually it’s a great shoe for any horse because it has better than average breakover all around the hoof which can help prevent this type of injury in all but catastrophic circumstances.  It’s also not quite as bulky as the regular NB shoe and is made of a bit softer steel so that the horse can better wear his own breakover quicker.

After six months of stall rest and a long careful rehab we were back competing the next year.  Also, very careful shoeing now, using NB shoeing methods and special frog support pads to support the inner foot, keeping breakover well back, and making sure his angles are kept correct, keep him sound.  He tends towards the long toe, low heel thing which doesn't help.

He does have a small bone spur that formed where the ligament tore away from the navicular bone, and on occasion it will bug him when lunged with that foot on the outside, but not always.  He always trots sound on the straight though.
