I guess you guys are right, corrective work would be a more appropriate term for what I'm looking to do. In fact I'd like to avoid shoes at all costs. I'm just curious about it for the comfort of my horse - and having never had anything of the sort done, I figured some research was in order - and this is the verrrrrry early stages of it. So no worries about jumping in with both feet really soon.
My TB was shod when I got him (OTT), and I had the shoes pulled. The farrier said he had decent feet, and should be able to go barefoot.
What I'm looking to correct, (or at least try to make more comfortable for my horse), his front legs are both twisted in - one to a worse degree than the other. The farrier said that he's not toed in, and that because of his age, it might be able to be corrected with some work.
I'll be posting pictures soon.
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
