1. The only time I have ever seen shoes "break" it wasn't a true break. The horse scuffed his toes until he wore them down and the shoe split in half.
1.1. If the horse is at a boarding barn, what are the odds someone took her out of the stall and did something with her?
1.2. Did the farrier put used shoes on her? They could have her own and were re-set, or he could have used another horse's shoes and charged you full price.
2. Absolutely do not ride her with the broken shoe. Wait for the farrier to put a new shoe on.
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
