I made a couple threads earlier about Berdi's hooves needing trimming. The farrier was out on the 10th and trimmed her up. However I had her out on gravel the other day and she was very tenderfooted. She would not walk or trot on the gravel but stayed to the side in the snow. I just took her home and put her in the pasture. All last summer she was fine on gravel for even 2 hour rides and she was with the same farrier and was barefoot. Her foot seems rather flat to me and I think she is bruising her sole on the gravel as it is touching.
Today I rode her in the field on a snowy path. She was acting slightly strange at first - not ouchy, just a little off. She was reluctant to go into the canter at first but ok later. We walked a trotted a bit and she seemed fine. I think she got bruised on that gravel a little. She is totally landing toe first as even with her not being trimmed for so long her toe was completely worn down while the rest was long. I need to know how her feet could be trimmed different and what I should do about this. Here are some pictures of her feet after the trim.
