I was wondering if any of you have had experience with the plus/minus of Glue on shoes? Do you think they hinder performance, while they are brilliant for troubled hooves, do you think they can disrupt the normal movement in the gallop? - Willingness to let down and stretch out etc?

They tend not to stay on long but don't in themselves hinder performance. What does however, is the need for them in the 1st place, given their cost. No shoe will fix an unhealthy, compromised foot with the exception of a bar shoe in the case of a cracked coffin/pedal bone which needs immobility Smile
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!
