Gaited Horse Feet

I work on a wide variety of horse breeds in my business, including various gaited horses. I have seen comments in different groups about how these horses need to have different biomechanics, a different trim, different angles, etc. To be 100% honest – I have not approached them differently than my other clients, and have heard feedback that they have been gaiting well!

I did a podcast episode a while back with Deb Davies about how imbalanced riding can affect a horse’s hoof balance and soundness, and for that episode I also spoke with Diane Sept, who had worked with Deb in the past. Through this connection, I learned that Diane was a gaited horse show judge, so I reached back out to her and asked if she would speak with me about gaited horse feet for the podcast. Luckily, she agreed!

In this episode, Diane and I discuss everything from shoe packages to hoof landings to common hoof issues seen in gaited horse breeds. You can hear the full conversation on your favorite podcast app under “The Humble Hoof,” or directly at this link.
