    She put on the weight in the past six weeks so I started riding her again. Only been riding her the past 2 weeks which is how we noticed the soreness.

    Stop riding until the soreness is gone. It is most likely from thrush and you will need to clean and tend to her hooves daily not once a week. They also need to have a proper trim. Where are you located? Someone might be able to give you recommendations on good farriers.

    I do clean her hooves (pick and brush) everyday. I only wash them out once a week. I can do it every day if need be. I live in Orange County, NY. Will be picking up some sort of thrush colution today, but am looking for some recommendations.

    This thread might have some useful suggestions.

    does this look like deep sulcus thrush.

    Look up some of the threads here on thrush. The best stuff to use is for cows called Tomorrow or Today. One works better but I can't remember which one. You have to scrub out the feet with dawn dish soap works best, let dry then put that stuff as far into the crack as you can and stuff with cotton to hold it in.

    I found Today at my local tractor supply. I'll pick it up tonight along with dawn dish soap. I also read somewhere about athlete's foot ointment/powder working? Any thoughts?

    Yes athletes foot ointment mixed 50/50 with triple antibiotic onitment fill crack with mixture and put cotton to keep it in.

    If you can do twice a day treatments that would be best. Iam dealing with deep sulcus thrush not fun. Your horses feet need a better trim from what I can see. Her heels are too long.

    Don't ride if she's sore and from the looks of her feet no wonder she's sore.

    Thanks so much! The cotton balls stay in until the next treatment or do you take them out before you put the horse back?

    Yes cotton balls stay in till next treatment. I take the cotton out and re treat then put more cotton to keep meds in. Sometimes the cotton has come out before next treatment.

    For most part it stays put then I. Treat and put clean cotton back in crack.

    Ok! I think I will try the 50/50 mix first and then if it doesn't work I'll buy the Today/Tomorrow, since I already have them.

    Thanks so much!

    Oh and I got the farrier to come out on Saturday to re-trim (the usual farrier) and do an eval on her feet.
