Low Heels

Low heels occur for a variety reasons, the obvious is the belief that heels must be trimmed very low to stimulate the back of the hoof, or some farriers believe that the heels must be trimmed low to accommodate the shoe. When removing shoes off these horses it is imperative to use a sole pad with a frog cut-out and a boot to keep the horse comfortable while he grows out his heels. Please click on each picture for more information.
