Sound Shoeing Protocol
4 Principals:
Proportion - vertical depth
Correct proportion
Proportion (vertical depth)

Widest part of the foot
Unsound - lack of vertical depth
Vertical depth in the hoof is imperative to the soundness of a horse
Yearling foot
Unsound - lack of vertical depth 2
Toe shape front feet
Under coronet shape
Ground surface toe shape
Shoe shape
Toe shape hind foot
Under coronet shape
Shoe fit around coronet
Ground surface toe shape
Shoe shape
Importance of preserving
the toe
Is the foot size in proportion to the size of the horse?
- use of golden means to measure
How to recognize true foot shape?
Under coronet shape
Undistorted white line
Imaging pedal bone shape

Widest part front foot
Centre of pedal bone
Shoeing around the pedal bone
Toe quarters and heel quarters same length and opposite each other
Widest part halfway
nature's recovery to true shape

Front Balance
Hind Balance
Shoeing to the long axis
Aligning the bony column
equal quarter lenghts
coronet level to the ground
on the shoe
in the shoe
Diagonal pull
The toe is the thickest and strongest part of the equine foot and needs to be preserved
When the toe quarters get too wide they pull their diagonal heel in and forward - low heel syndrome
Naked foot

red line - pedal bone just under sole
Heel separation

Why the pedal bone is the shape it is?
How to trim and shoe to true shape
To allow the horse to break-over in different angles depending on:

Trim and fit to shape
Shoe to match pedal bone
Untrimmed foot showing clear shape
Trimmed foot preserving shape
Burn marks showing nail placement and pedal bone shape in the inside of shoe
Fitted to foot, widest part half way
Check shoe shape, tightly on top coronet
