Historically, show jumping horses have been shod similarly to other disciplines. This study sought to measure and compare the effects of hind shoes with frog support compared to traditional open heel hinds, at the moment of high speed impact. The study found that frog support hinds significantly altered hoof orientation. These findings show the importance of the interaction between the hoof and ground and may influence farriery intervention in the athletic horse.
