Agreed, it does keep the horse from moving their natural way. Also, shoeing for a long period of time can really hurt your horse's hoof wall. It makes the frog sensative, especially when they wear shoes for part of the year and a few months out of it are expected to walk around barefoot. It is almost impossible for them to stay comfortable. Posted via Mobile Device
