Since I've moved barns 4 months ago I had to change farriers. My trainer who used to board my guy is noticing he now has higher feet -in the hind- than before, and she believes also his way of going has changed. In the trot, because the toe has been trimmed back, he doesn't look as though he is reaching out, but more of an angle. In a recent pic it looks like the toe is landing first, though I don't know --maybe due to being behind the leg or moving lazily?
He has a habit of forging but I think we're going to deal with this by riding - maybe I should ask the farrier to not round down his toe so much?
How should a horse foot land?? In walk and trot?
What do you think? Excuse the mud. The qq is about the hinds, not the front. Though if you notice something, by all means! TIA.
