This shoe is much the same as a natural balance shoe. The thick bold toe forces those farriers that fit their shoes to the end of the toe to set the shoe back a little which moves the point of breakover back. Low and behold you ease breakover and the horse moves better, it's a miracle!! You shouldn't need these gimmic shoes if you can properly fit a horse's foot IMHO.
As for plastic shoes, you nail them on and cut to fit. There's some leeway for proper nail placemant. They offer way better shock absorbsion than a pad that's mashed between the hoof and shoe. A good tool to have in any shoers bag of tricks. Posted via Mobile Device
