Will a horse ever pull a Happy Hoofwear™ shoe?
Yes, they will. When a foot has been correctly trimmed and balanced, and the shoe has been correctly fitted and applied, the risk of losing a shoe is minimal. However, just as with a steel shoe, if your horse explodes with joy at being turned out for the first time in a week, the likelihood of jerking a shoe off goes way up. Deep mud, rough ground, an unbalanced rider, pawing at the fence, etc., all contribute to the loss of a shoe. UNLIKE a steel shoe, a bright orange or hot pink shoe is MUCH easier to find! And they don’t get all twisted like a steel shoe. Simply pull out the old nails and tack it back on.
