Before the first shoeing, this is discussed with the horse owner. As a rule, every 7 to 10 weeks, depending on the condition of the hooves, the external influences, the use of the horse, etc.

In principle, yes, but there are many factors that influence the hoof of an animal and its wear to a greater or lesser extent. As a responsible owner and/or rider, these factors must be taken into account. In each individual case, it is up to the rider to decide what predispositions the animal has, what the current status of the hooves is and what tasks are required of the animal.

Of course - yes. But here, too, there are many years of specialised training, in which a lot is imparted and taught. Knowledge alone is not always enough. Practical experience of farriers cannot simply be replaced. The daily work with the customer (horse) is the secret. My advice: better contact the professionals!

In general, orthopaedic shoeing means more effort in the creation, adjustment and attachment to the horse compared to normal shoeing. The orthopaedic shoe is always used if a doctor demands it or if the horse with corresponding atypical changes runs better with it. Abnormal temporary or permanent (chronic) changes due to injuries or illness are decisive for the choice of orthopaedic shoeing.
