For those of you who have horses that have intermittent upward patellar fixation:
How successful has corrective shoeing been in helping the problem? Has it made a big difference, or not much of a difference at all?
If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
If I smell like manure, I tripped.
We tried eggbars, wedges, shoes with trailers, rolled-toe shoes, and aluminum shoes (because they are lighter). All made him much worse so I have kept him barefoot behind ever since, and as long as he stays in work and I make sure he always uses his hind end properly (back round and hind legs stepping briskly under and not getting left behind) he is perfect!!! I don't think that horse's stifle has slipped in years. It used to slip 20 + times per ride when he was in shoes.
