HELP: Horse Hoof with large chipping
I have recently purchased a 15.3 2017 gelding. When I brought him home, he had shoes on his front feet. I do not shoe my horses, so my farrier removed the shoes when he was due for a trim. Unfortunately he has been shod since he was a yearling and now he has large cracks and chipping on his front hooves. I am unsure of what to do with such large cracks. I have been riding him almost daily, and I'm trying to lighten up, but I need to be able to continue riding him with getting lame. I have started coating his feet in apple cider vinegar, so if you are able to give me some advice that would be wonderful!
Thank you for the help!
