Is your horse foundering? If so, I would use some kind dense foam or padding that you can cut to fit the bottom of the hoof and tape it on until your vet and farrier can get there.
I hope that isn't it, but even so, if feet are tender and ouchy they need a softer surface. You can provide soft footing by bedding a stall, tho I don't like shutting a horse in with ouchy feet either. Or if you can provide soft footing in any way that will help. Hard ground hurts if feet are tender.
