My horse gets alot of knee action when her hooves grow out a little and I want for the showring. It is hard to find a farrier to leave a hoof wall long and in my opinion they trim too short in general. I was thinking about front shoes for a little action but I assume it would be healthier and less expensive to just keep a little longer hoof. Her hooves grow evenly and are strong. What do others do when some action is desirable and shoes are not a neccessity for your area you work the horse?
