I wish this were the debate we were having for the horse, and horse athlete,...deformable unfixed orthotics versus barefoot instead of fixed metal at the end of the limb versus barefoot/hoofboot.
Why are we so far behind with this animal relative to every other animal on the planet?
I am not interesting in changing what people do now, there are lots of good reasons why people do the things they do ... I am interested, however, in building the best possible bridge to the future for the horse as well as the human.
