I am amazed that you can tell with the pair of eventer shoes that the horse has a back problem! It is mind blowing. Sil those shoes are pretty out there! RR do you have any of the 'bar' shoes you were talking about for the horse without a very low heel? I would like to see one to understand how it supports the heel and where the bar is. If you don't no drama I am sure you have something else in your stash to test us with. I have learnt so much from this thread. It has opened my mind up to the world of shoeing and why it is such a technical profession.
