Re: Shoes absorbing shock

Well. I guess ya learn something every day! :-)
I read where Valarie Kanavy tried Shock Tamer (I think) pads at the ROC,
but they weren't doing the job, so she switched to Sneakers (I think) at
a vet check and they did. Guess that's what made it hard for me to think
different steel would make much difference...but I see you point.
I used to envy people like you. I REALLY wanted to be able to show
people some worn out shoes, and my horse just doesn't seem to wear them
out. The only pair that got even a little thin had 2 50's and a 100
miler on them. My farrier said it's because I don't ride on pavement
like lots of folks, but I know that's not it. I talked to a girl with a
mare just like your stallion at a race last fall. Her shoes were paper
thin from the mare pacing the fence because of a stallion in the
distance. I guess I'll just quit hoping to have shoes thin. :-)
