Farriers/exercising a horse on tarmac road with synthetic shoes
Hi sir. I have a serious question for you. Hope you can answer it.
Question : Can I exercise my horse on tarmac road especially cantering provided I shoe them with synthetic shoes? Hope it doesn't spoil the hooves and tendons.
HELLO ROBERTS...THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION...
It will not hurt the horse in any way,as long as the horse's hooves are
Not allow'd to get or stay in a wet condition.
Wet or softer hoof walls will seem to not have the strength or density for the
Shoe's clinches to stay tight. With any synthetic shoe, the shoes have some give to
them & the clinches can move & lost shoes can occur.
Best to You...
