Need shoeing help
For a horse with an upright shoulder, short pasterns and a naturally very short stride, what would you recommend in terms of breakover for shoeing? I don't completely understand breakover. On our last shoeing, while I liked the angle of the foot, he set the shoe back a good inch or so and shaved off the front of the foot to match the shoe. I'm thinking it actually impeded my horses already short stride instead of help it, but I'm really not sure. Any farriers on this site? We're due for new shoes this week.
You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
