can't say that I see her slapping the ground. The toe does kind of bounce up off the ground? I have her wall back pretty close to the white line, but when you do the 'mapping', it should still come back more. Does this mean I should leave it alone and bring it back slowly every couple of weeks maybe?
The ELPO mapping is not intended for bringing the toe back to the breakover line from the front (from the hoof wall side) It is intended to map the correct anatomical place to put a ROLL or slight bevel across the bottom of the toe to allow an efficient breakover., don't 'mix and match' trim guidelines. With the exception of dressing flares off, taking the toe back from the front has no place in the ELPO guidelines. Please review the videos from Gene Ovnicek in the ELPO website on trimming and rasp the breakover at the toe the way he shows, if you are going to follow the ELPO mapping. BUT if you already took the hoof wall away too much where the breakover line mets the wall (the "pillars or toe corners) you may have to wait to rasp in the beak over bevel till you have some wall there. Otherwise you will make the horse sore.
