Cupped soles

Cupped soles are great - better hoof integrity ONLY if Mother Nature does it - not the farrier.

I was a farrier for 13 years, as well as endurance rider (4000 miles in the few years I participated seriously).  I would never recommend unnaturally cupping a horse's soles and expect them to remain unbruised.  My recommendation is to leave the bottom of a horse's foot as close to natural for that particular animal as possible..
