RE: [RC] Ringbone and borium shoes - Jill Carr

My 12yr old carriage horse has borium on his shoes & he's been shod this way
continually since he was 5.  He doesn't do the mileage that our endurance
horses do, but he's never been lame, off or sore.  The borium has worked
well for him, especially since we do a lot of road work, but helps as well
on hard packed dirt, gravel, dry grass, granite, whatever.  I used to do
combined driving with him & the borium gave him a lot of confidence on the
turns & hills where, without the borium, he'd tend to slip.

I'd really like to try it on the endurance horses, but I've been too
chicken, since we do about 1000 miles per year and I've heard people say
that the "grippy" borium could cause trouble.  My personal opinion is
"grippy" may be les dangerous than "trippy" or "slippy", but like I said,
I'm too chicken to try it.  I'd love to hear also from anyone who knows if
one way or the other is better.

Jill

Just wondering what opinions are on the use of borium studs on shoes year
round and any link it might have to causing ringbone?
