Recently I started using a new farrier and my horses stride has become increasingly larger than it used to be and my horse looks awesome! But, the only problem is he is forging a lot and pulling shoes every few weeks, usually the right front. I know it is from forging because the shoe is bent on one side from the foot clipping it and pulling it loose and I have watched him pull them off. I have bell boots on him already and they seem to help a little, but I was wondering if anyone has an other ideas I haven't thought of that can help this problem! thanks !
On the back feet have your Farrier leave the heals high. then slide the shoes back about 1/4" and square off the toe. put trailers on the outside about 3/4" long.
On the front you can have him bevel the heals on the top so that if a back shoe clips the front it will not have a chance to grab as much.
keep bellboots on him. ;-)
Farrier, if he is any good, can help. Talk to him and ahve him watch the horse move. I have a horse that does this sometimes when I ride. He is a big mover and if I let our rhythm get too quick, he will start forging. I need to slow my brain a bit and slow his hindquarters a bit and no more forging. It is easy to get carried away on a big trotting horse!
