    Sound Or Lame: It's Often Found In The Health Of The Sole

    (NAPSI)—When it comes to keeping your horse healthy, hoof care is often the critical element that allows you to enjoy normal activities with your horse, such as riding. Both shod and unshod, otherwise known as shoed or barefoot, philosophies offer benefits, but also come with limitations, which directly affect the health of the soles. While shoeing is necessary for many horses, a shod foot does not absorb shock as efficiently, mostly because shoeing raises the sole and frog off the ground, and constrains the normal flex of the foot. A lack of sufficient ground contact and stimulation limits circulation, which causes soles to shrink, which can lead to numerous problems. By contrast, an unshod foot uses the hoof wall, internal hoof cavity and sole to absorb and dissipate shock. However, adding the weight of the horse and a rider can sometimes wear the hoof down faster than it grows. In these cases, shoes or boots can be a good short-term alternative, as well as polyurethane pour-in pad materials to help limit sole wear and provide the necessary support.
