My horse has severe ringbone and is wearing corrective shoes. Since a shoeing 3 months ago she has been lame and her ringbone has progressed rapidly. She is still slightly lame but paddock sound and I am able to take her for 30 min walks as some exercise. Now not trying to start a shoes vs barefoot debate but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to me and found going barefoot made their horse more comfy? I thought maybe the shoe may ad to the concussion and cause more pain but i could be wrong. Can anyone recommend a good barefoot trimmer. Little scared as I have had one hacked her foot! The vets and farrier have pretty much given up on her and told me not to waste anymore money on her, which I would spend every cent I could if it would make her more comfy!
