Basically, boot or pad to protect & support her feet. There are many reasons she may be sore, from diet, environment, wet ground, bad/insufficient trimming, too rough trails for what she's used to, thrush/infection... So need more info to give you any more specifics. Hoof pics(see link below) would also be helpful.
