Pics of hooves would be best, but as to OP, I would video horse being ridden to see what comes across best and figure the TWH judges are going to want more traditional gait, so nice running walk maybe?
What classes are you showing in? Might also see if there is video from years past to see what others are doing.
I believe that 1/2 by 1 inch is 1/2 inch thick and 1 inch wide. That's a pretty heavy shoe.
