    Default shoeing advice sought.

    My horse is slipping badly in my grass ring. I asked my farrier what to do and he suggested small dots of drill tex (like borium, but harder). I am also hound exercising, and this will help on the roads. Has anyone had any experience with using this to help with slipping??

    I've got 18 horses that currently ordinarily have tungsten (which is what we call borium in the UK) road studs in their shoes.

    Mine are all ride and drive horses and as such they do a lot of road work. It works and I can most definitely confirm that it helps with traction.
