Horses hoofs and jumping
Firstly, Sorry if this is in the wrong place, this is the first post I have made.
I am training my horse to jump, she´s 12.
She has jumped before, about 4 years ago, so I know she can do it, it´s a case of training her back up as she was rescued from a school.
I took her over some trot poles, all was fine, set up a small cross bar and she keeps knocking them over with her back feet (not everytime)
She has lazy back feet.
Firstly, does anyone have any tips that could help me to get her to lift her feet, and also is there any shoes that I can put on her hoofs/legs that will protect them from the knocks, as I don't want her injured.
