Cool yasha horseshoes? legit or not?

I was looking on Craigslist and this person asked about Yasha horse shoes, she said that a barrel racer in the NFR was using them and how good they worked and supported the horses heel and sole.

Has anyone used them? If you haven't does this seem legit?

this is what is one his homepage:Thanks for shoeing my lame paint horse at Chris Gambino's place. She is doing very well. The following morning, she came jogging in for her feed! Pretty incredible since she didn't want to take a step the day before. From "Founder to Frolicking!"....

her is the link:Tenderhoof Solutions, LLC (Hoof Lameness Help For Horses)

There is no such thing as a magic horseshoe . It all depends on the trim and how it is applied to the hoof . There are many different shoes you can get the same results in if applied properly . Although these shoes have the easiest application of any glue on Ive seen because you can shape them to fit the foot .

I saw someone at the Circuit Finals using them. I don't know anything about them but the horse ran pretty good. I'm interested to see what other people say.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Maintaining healthy heels and sound hooves is more about properly trimming and balancing the feet, and setting the shoeing correctly around the bones inside than it is any brand of shoe. If more farriers correctly trimmed the heels of feet instead of allowing them to run forward and under, then their client's horses would not get sore heels in the first place.

All I can say is that for $40 per pair for "competition" shoes, they better dang well be able to perform miracles .

Even their nail on shoes are $34. You can get a pair of Kerckheart SX8 keg shoes (exactly the same as theirs, just without the added padding on there) for less than $5 per pair.

I really wonder how much cushion that thin layer of padding really offers . I can't see it being any more effective than a doubled over layer of innertubing between the hoof and the shoe....just about $30 more expensive per pair.

IMHO, it's just one more thing advertised as a "miracle cure" that really isn't. Thing is, it only helps if it's applied properly and if you have a farrier that has a clue what he's doing, then he can figure something out to do you a much better job without the exorbitant price tag.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
