    As long as ur horses back feet are strong and the front are shod I think trotting would be fine bc most of the horses weight is carried on the front feet and the shoes will absorb almost all of the shock but I wouldnt go any faster than a trot just bc if you ask them to canter it puts more pressure on the back feet
