    If you know she has weak, thin soles, then don't ride her without protection. Hoof boots - possibly with pads if she's that thin & sensitive - are a great answer in most situations... though sometimes not great for jumping. Diet & nutrition are also vital considerations for growing strong hooves, as is good trimming & environment.

    Thanks! I am looking for some boots for her. And I will ask my vet about some feed for her hooves. What do you use to strengthen hooves?
