Horses/club feet correction


Hi ma'am. Can club feet in horses be corrected through surgery? Would you suggest me to buy a club footed horse especially for flat racing?

  There is no surgery to correct a club foot in a horse. There are far too many variables for me to make a recommendation one way or another on buying a club footed horse for any reason. You should consider the age of the horse, breeding, overall conformation, severity of the club foot, price and whether the horse has been receiving professional hoof care/shoeing.

I am knowledgeable regarding Standardbred race horses (trotters and pacers). I can answer general questions, questions regarding conformation, rigging, lameness and some shoeing questions.


I raced standardbreds (primarily trotters) for 9 years on the Grand Circuit and in overnight events for approximately 15 years.
