Good question! So I have asked that and I was told that she should have the proper balance to be functional even with some hoof gone (if it fails to grow back). She probably would never make a jumping horse or anything but will be able to continue the local shows for western, english, and showmanship.
Even today she will trot around and has broke into a lope a couple of times and is balanced. She still has some soreness which will take time to go away.
Here is a pic of her and I from last night :) April and I.jpg
