Berts sudden sore feet hellpp

Ok so yestorday I went to the barn to do work with bert and we noticed he was a bit lame. And today he was still lame. I am wondering if maybe it is because thursday is when he got his feet trimmed and me and a friends rode him then friday I skipped and saturday I rode him again for 2-3 hours and I havent rode him since but yestorday and today he's been sore :{. Is there anything I can do to help him a little bit? And what do you guys think

Who knows without more info. While he *shouldn't* be sore/more sensitive after a trim, there are rare exceptions, but more to the point, it seems common for many farriers to trim in such a way as to make a horse sore. Eg. If they pare/rasp into the sole or frog. That's effectively thinning the 'armour plating' so there's less protection for the internal foot. Bruising & subsequent abscessing is the common effect from this. If you think it's likely, I'd keep him of rough/hard ground for now &/or use hoof boots.
