Here is a photo of his clubbed hoof. His old owner told us she would mainly ride him along the beach but then she had a stroke so he was left in a paddock for 8 months

he looks to have a tad of arthritis in the pastern/ ringbone or such.
If you are not doing fast stops, turns etc on him he should be okay.
If he starts gettin sore or lame , then you will know it is to much.

My boy has one and doesn't affect him in the slightest, I'm planning on eventing him this year :)

He raced quite for a few years as well and never seemed to bother him

Afraid that pic is completely pointless sorry. What we need to see mostly is the heel angle/height, etc, as that's what we're discussing. You also need to get the horse standing on a hard, flat surface, not with grass/soft ground obscuring the hoof. Also from ground level & squarely. Check out the link in my signature for what is required for critique pics.

Take a board with you & get him to stand on it then.
