Around here, horses stand around in mud all spring, then go out on the first nice day and do 10 or 12 miles on gravel. I've yet to see one with chunks out of his frogs and sole like that... If this is from riding, they were riding him on sharp rocks, and even then, I would suspect the damage to be more on the rear of the frog, not the point. That's usually the last area damaged. He also doesn't have much chipping to his hoof wall, even though he's not well-trimmed. I'm willing to bet this was done with a hoof knife.
