Question Horse with navicular

Hi Everyone!
My horse has navicular and walks better on concrete than on soft dirt/sand. I can't figure out why this is. Can anyone help?

If your horse has navicular or any sort of lameness I hope you are on a treatment / management plan with a good vet / farrier team :)

If you have concerns about your horse walking poorly on any surface I'd ask them.

You also might want to make sure the sand / dirt is not too deep. Just like people, it's easier to walk on ground that is solid. Ever run on the beach up on the sand that isn't wet or compacted? It's no easy task!

Yea I've had my horse for 9 years. He's on bute, suppliments, has been nerved, has had radiation. He's out to pasture now but i've just always wondered why he walked better on concrete. Like you said it's just easier.
