And by hard, I mean heavy duty ranch work, roping, dragging, running full out over rough-ass terrain, sharp turns, and sudden stops, sometimes with 1000+ pounds of added weight attached to the saddle horn. He is also the most sure-footed horse I've ever ridden.
When a horse has a fault like that, the best thing that you can do to ensure their long-term soundness is to be meticulous about good hoof care. If you can keep their feet balanced, then that minimizes the stress on their legs and will help them stay sound longer.
