It sounds a bit like hog fuel footing. Generally only used in an indoor arena around here (also nw) because of our lovely weather. I've never heard of horses having issues with it, I've actually used it in a muddy area of one of our pastures to help soak up some of the excess water, my barefoot horses are on it all the time when we have it in there and have been fine. That's not to say that its not possible that it could cause a problem, but I wouldn't really think so, especially if tripping is the issue, not apparent tenderness, and its only intermittent...
