I can see resetting them early and pour in padding help a great deal.
They are probably more developed than they were when I saw them, it's been some time *sigh*
The trotter folks...well, whole different story lol. They use them mainly as protection,for horses which race barefoot, not to correct or heal anything. Horse moving nice and straight, it works fine. Depending on the track surface, they consume a lot of them. But then again, they re-shoe weekly.
