Question
Hi sir. It's said that trainers use rubber pads on horse hooves which are subjected to shocks. May I know how to get to know that?

Answer
HELLO ROBERTS...THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION...

Pads are used to help & control shock/concussion.
If the horse shows tenderness, they can be applied "temporary" to give relief.

You asked..."How to get to know that" ???
All I can say... Is Experience is the teacher !!

Thank YOU !!
