Also, please make sure you have the right size. AQHA13, please don't ride your sisters horse in the ones that are too small. You will only hurt the horse more. Please get him proper fitting ones as ones that don't fit correctly are more of a hazard than a help.
Aramea, they aren't to small, he just has funny shaped feet. His last owners weren't very caring for his feet so now we are working with our farrier to bring his toes back to a normal length. :)
