These feet have transformed over the last 6 months and are now looking great 👍! Even with this extended unusually dry period we are having here in the UK 🇬🇧 we have managed (with a reduced shoeing cycle, regular application of @kevinbacons.equineproducts and appropriate shoe selection and application) to restore the overall balance, condition and health of these feet. We are still continuously working to restore his long sloping hoof wall but with a much stronger and healthier hoof we stand a better chance of achieving a healthier hoof mechanism. 🐎 👌 📞 If you are interested in any of our farriery services we are currently taking on new clients and would love to hear from you.

This little guy, son of the mighty #frankel has a lot to live up to....but for now, he’s just checking out the new branded hats 🧢 and I think he approves 👌🐎 #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Back in February we were contacted to have a look at this horse and asked if there was anything we could do for him....We set about trying to improve his overall hoof mechanism restoring hoof balance, geometry and health. 🤞🏻 we continue with such improvements! This picture was sent to us this morning by the owner. 👌😃 📞 If you too are interested in any of our #farriery services then feel free to get in touch either via DM or 07795060575 🐎  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Its a pleasure working with this horse and to see such improvement in his feet over such a short period of time is extremely satisfying.  His frogs are becoming much healthier and as a result his entire back half of his foot from his heels, bars and bulbs of heel are relaxing and widening.  Using Slow motion videography we noticed he was landing heel first which factoring in his palmar hoof pathologies we set about restoring a more level footfall, whilst also reducing the concussive forces experienced by the foot.  We opted for a exaggerated ‘Timeline’ shoe similar to that of a rocker shoe which helps reduce the time the heels are loaded and aids in the breakover phase of the stride.  Leather pads where used to reduce some of the concussive forces between shoe and foot, along with Vettec Equi-pak silicon cushioning injected under the pad for additional comfort.  With the use of @mark6659 foot mapping technique we are able to continually address his overall foot balance, helping to aid in the correct shoe placement.  With the help of @laurence.ridgeway and The Team at our Forge facility we can hopefully make this true gent a little more comfortable as he steps up his competitions👌🐴 📞 Interested im bring your horse to the forge or any of our Farriery services please call 07795060575 or DM 🐎👍 #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Following up on this particular case of Negative Palmar Angle or slight de-rotation of the pedal bone within the hoof capsule. The bar shoe, DIM material and set toe has really helped improve the overall geometry of the hoof capsule with a much improved Hoof Pastern Axis, HPA. I have avoided any sort of graduation as my aim is to encourage as much weight sharing across the back half as possible. Re shod with @stromsholm_ltd kerkheart 3/4 fullered shoe with @werkmanhorseshoes straight bar weld in insert from @theshoeinglab. Stud holes for additional traction and copper coated nails for their antibacterial properties. 👌 📞 If you are interested in any of our services please call 07795060575 or DM me.  www.alexridgeway.com 🐎 #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Caring for the Racehorse:  The thoroughbred Racehorse is renowned for poor quality feet and hoof conformation, however with regular checking, routine shoeing and hoof care treatments we are able to encourage overall healthy hooves. 🐎 👌 📞 Now accepting new clients, for all Farriery services call 07795060575  www.alexridgeway.com #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
This was a perfect opportunity to use foot mapping to highlight poor hoof balance, forward migration of the toe, stretching of the white line and overall poor geometric proportions. Addressing this in the trim is crucial and along with correct shoe placement and further shoe modification, balance can be gradually restored. It will be a gradual process with these feet but is was nice to have this guy visit us at our forge today.  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Mike Steward Wooden Clog used for a case of Laminitis with DIM packing and equi-cast wrapping. Point of ‘Breakover’ fitted just behind the tip of the pedal bone  and all sides bevelled back to peripheral margins of the pedal bone to reduces tensile forces across the laminal bed.  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #norfolk #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #suffolk #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #cambridge #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #polopony #polo #eastanglia
This is one spider I like.  Regrann from @alexridgewayfarrier - ‘Spider Plate’ 🕷 weld in bar insert was used  to protect caudal aspect of foot from direct pressure from the ground or any objects. We chose this option after testing slightly positive to hoof testers around mid frog region. The spider plate also helps to increase surface area and allow us to reduce the forces placed upon the contracted heels.  Check back to see how things go with these spider plates. 📞 Farriery Services call: 07795060575 #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsebackriding #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway #horseriding  #suffolk #newmarket #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द
X-rays taken on this Laminitic horse in order to determine pedal bone position and orientation along with sole depth and sinker depth. A drawing pin is placed at the frog apex as a reference point used to aid in both the trim and shoe placement along with the dorsal hoof wall wire marker to help determine hoof wall and pedal bone correlation. ⠀ More on this case to follow!!⠀ 📞 For all Farriery Services call 07795060575⠀ 🐎⠀ #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding
Preparing a clog for a horse with Laminitis. The green material is Dental Impression Material and is used to pack the back half of the foot creating even pressure distribution and to incorporate more structures into the weight bearing responsibilities reducing that from the failing hoof wall. The clog is also well seated directly below the tip of Pedal Bone.  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway  #newmarket #laminitis #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof #horsebackriding

2nd shoeing @ the Forge for this guy over the weekend and it was great to see improvement being made. We continue to address the initial problems we highlighted in regards to hoof balance and function, however we opted for slightly different shoes this time round.

Clogs are one way to help the horse with laminitis! Shared from @alexridgewayfarrier -  Constructing and correctly applying a ‘Clog’ for cases of Laminitis formed part of the ‘Modern Material’ examination for end of Year 1 of BSc Farriery course. The clog is fitted to Xray measurements to determine the exactly position of the Pedal Bone and the required point of Breakover. Dental impression (play doh in this instance) is used to pack the back half of the foot to reduce pressure on the peripheral hoof wall around the toe area. 👍🏻🐎 Having passed all exams, I am now half way to achieving my Higher Diploma qualification and one step close to my bachelors. 👍💪🤓 Looking forward to a busy season ahead and starting back in September. 📖 🐎 🔨 👌  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horses #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #alexridgeway #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #laminitis #lameness #vet

Working on improving foot balance through shoe modification via lateral extension of the shoe and correct placement in order to achieve level foot fall and support to the ascending joints. ⠀ Having the environment to be able to assess horses properly and provide best possibly level of service is a great privilege and one we are very proud of. ⠀ 👌🐎😁⠀ If you would like to bring YOUR horse to the forge then do get in touch via DM or visit my website ⠀ Www.alexridgeway.com⠀  #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #hotshoes #alexridgeway #traditional #craftsman #horsemanship #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof
Here you can see the ‘Set toe’ along with the bevelling at the Heels. Both are an attempt at reduced forces the foot experiences from Impact to Breakover.  5 days and we have had great feedback for this horse so it’s 👍🤗💪 #showjumping #dressagehorse #eventer #racehorse #thoroughbred #farrier #newmarketfarrier #horse #performancehorse #horseracing #enduranceracing #horsesofinstagram #herrador #endurance #arabianhorse #warmblood #hotshoes #alexridgeway #traditional #craftsman #horsemanship #caballo #حصان #بيطار #قدرة التحمل #नालबन्द #घोड़ा #hoof
