What are everyone's suggestions/thoughts for a prospective barrel horse with a club foot? The degree of the club foot is not severe, but is slightly noticeable. I have read horror stories, as well as good stories about horses with a club foot going on to be very successful. I am afraid it is already affecting him, as he does not easily pick up his right lead. The club foot is his right front.
Does anyone have any experience in this, or have any ideas? I know trimming the heel down regularly is the first thing you can do, but anything besides that?
