I used to have two small lengths of chain that would fit around my mares foot almost like a ankle braclet and when she would paw they would slap her slightly on her coranet band. I had them fasteneed with a light leather strap and just left them on all the time she was in her pen and just take them off when I rode. Worked a bit but if they weren't on she would start pawing again.

I think the best thing is if you can put really long miles on for days on end so all they want to do is stand but that is hard to do on a limited schedule like mine sadly.

Good luck

I taught my horse to hobble. Everytime he started pawing he was hobbled. Fixed it pretty quick.
