Why don't some people use any dicression or common sence? Do you really think it a good idea to pull the shoes and go right to jumping and running lanes? Esp w/o a trim. Don't come here crying in a couple of days if your horse pulls up lame.

As to your original question,

Venitan turpintine/Magic Cousion
7% iodine (soles only,not frog)

Will all do a fine job of toughening the soles. They are listed in order of my preferance.

I pulled shoes a while ago. I don't post very frequently. If I didn't think my horse could handle it I wouldn't do it. And trust me I won't come crying. I'll deal with it as need be. Just as I am with his cut in his mouth and not using a bit. But thanks for your concern and the answer to my original question.
