Foot problems are one of the most common causes of lameness in horses. However, the care of horses feet is often overlooked by owners. Neglected feet can develop many conditions which, if left untreated, can result in severe lameness with loss of use of your horse. Maintaining your horses feet in good condition is of primary importance. Ensuring your horse is seen by your farrier on a regular basis will make up part of your foot care routine. Your farrier will be the best person to decide which horseshoes are best for your horse.
