Some stretches before shoeing could make a big difference. Stretches for the horse, that is.
If the horse you're working on is unable to extend it's leg and bring it higher, the result is that you, the farrier, end up bending down in an uncomfortable position. Shoeing this way for days, weeks or years is a sure fire way to give yourself a chronic back problem.
The solution? Equine Flexion Therapy (EFT) provided by the farrier prior to shoeing. Spending a few minutes on EFT can make a world of difference in the horse's flexibility and comfort, making your job more comfortable and saving your back.
Becoming EFT certified and learning this patented technique is a great investment in your own health as well as the horse's.
