I've kinda thought this for a while, but it really never came to head until tonight. I was out on a ride I checked all the shoes before I saddle my mare. All shoes were on good and tight. We(me and a friend) had just about finished a 4 hour ride. We were about mile from home and we started trotting.
My friend got in front of me which was fine. I felt my horse trip hobble and then limp. I made her stop right away and I got off. I looked back and there was her shoe laying there about 20/25 feet from us. It was bent and the nails we laid down but we're almost straight up.
Last time she pulled a shoe my farrier told me to save it, he's actually out of town so I can't contact him till Wednesday. I've got pictures and I was just wondering if you guys thought the same.
She is a little bit built up hill so she really digs and gets her butt underneath her. So I'm thinking that's why she's over stepping. I know listen to my farrier. But I was just wondering how I could go about fixing this if he didn't suggest something(which I am sure he will). I was thinking bell boots? I'm not sure. Opinions please?
