Article about shoeing the dressage horse

Remember These Pointers When Under Dressage Horses - American Farriers Journal

He makes some interesting points. I was intrigued that he didnt like trailers and feels they overwork the hocks.. I see them lots in the upper levels (that is how Totilas is shod). Thoughts?

I need to research some of the terms... calks??

But overall, a very good article, and when you read it, all seems to click and make sense.

Thanks for sharing!

Corks. The screwy inny things for traction - I only use them in winter here, but we never compete on turf..
I've also been reading Fran Jurga's blog... Trying to find interesting questions to bug my vet and farrier with!!

DuffyDuck. I believe that cork are refered to as studs in the UK. Generaly you only use them on Grass, they are absolutly essential if jumping on grass and on most UK show ground if it is slightly damp as it will get slippy.

I love this article, though I really think that these ideas need to be applied to almost every horse. I get that there are specialized setups of, say, gaited horses or reiners and the like. Overall though, I would love to see more farriers just approach a trim or shoeing with the idea of making the hoof balanced to the horses confirmation.
