racehorse underrun Achilles heel ?
Just want to share few thoughts about the underrun heels in the racing industry.
I'm no expert , but to my logic.
The "standard race plating" has a built in fault.
When you think about it, its reinforce the toe and enlarge its mass
While the heels are, simply put it, just "covered up" .
And actually "left alone" to handle the track and speed forces.
Is that might be the reason that underrun heels are so prevalent in this discipline ?.
Are racehorse maybe should shod in different way ?
A way that put much more emphasis on heel TRUE support ?
