Studs or borium can always be added to aluminum shoes to allow for pavement riding (what Donald is planning on doing with Super this year).
I also know some people who I don't have as much respect for (if any.. ;; ) that swear by them.
To he shod correctly, the rubber/silicon shoes need to be rasped to the correct size and trimmed down in some spots depending on the horse's feet and they're apparently h*ll to try and nail on. And personally, I just don't trust glue..lol.
But, only things I've heard.

I was told borium is dangerous. If a horse kicks another horse, the borium will slice into the other horse really bad.
A farrier told me that and a person who trains and stables horses said it too.
Has your farrier said anything about that?
Would like to know if what I was told is correct.
