Stance and Conformation

While conformational issues are real problem in the horse world, unfortunately for the horse, in many cases this is confused with compensation.

Compensation is when the horse chooses a standing and/or movment pattern, which allows it to exist in the least painful manner. Removing the pain source will allow the horse to return to a physiologically correct standing and/or movement pattern.

It is the job of a Holistic Hoofcare Professional to identify whether or not this pain source is hoof related, and if so, remove the cause.
