He cuts his feets, is there are thing I can do?

My horse got cutted leg long time ago, He cutted all the mucles and we were never sure he would ride again. Tho now, 3 years later he's going so great! He is going great but there is one thing. He doesn´t have alot of power in the cutted leg, less than in the others. So he often cut himself, right over the hoof. I have tried to find boots that fit over that place without being to heavy and not the once that hurt him. I can't find any good anough. He is my competition horse today and he don't want him to get into this trouble again, cause it takes sooo long time to get good again! Is there anything that can help me?

I ride a Icelandic horse!

What about bell boots? They cover right above the coronet band. And even if you have to turn them around backwards you could do they couldn't you?

I would use sport boots that go below the fetlock combined with petal bell boots. That will cover the whole leg from knee to hoof and won't be too heavy.

Boots like these:

My horse cuts herself (still wondering how) on back of front leg right above the hoof. I keep bell boots on her 24/7 now. Something like this: Dover Saddlery | Equi-Stretch Ribbed Bell Boots. I like them over pull-ons, because you can tighten it the way you like.

Possibly because she is short-backed, long-legged and strikes her front heel with her back hoof.

I'd try boots like the ones luvs2ride posted with bellboots. They also make some with bell boots attached to them, search for professional choice sports combo boots

You might need more breakover on the front feet. Tell your farrier what's happening and he might be able to address it.

I don't think so, luvs (I did trimming too, they look OK to me, but I'll ask my guy next time anyway just in case). I think what's happening is she's clumsy and getting stepped on sharp objects. It was especially bad in winter when we had ice - she definitely cut it on ice twice. So I kept boots on her during winter after that. But she also cut herself last Fall no snow, so after that I just keep them on 24/7 year around.
