[endurance] corns/heel bruises

A friend of mine has an Arabian gelding that is very
prone to corns (heel bruises) on the front feet. He's
tried wedge pads and Equithotics shoes, but nothing
seems to prevent their development. The more the horse
is ridden, the worse they get, but he also has some
evidence of the bruising after winter turn-out.

Any similar experiences out there? Any suggestions?
