On May 1st, I added a second horse to my Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover journey, Clyde Park. Unfortunately, he arrived in a lot worse shape than we had expected. With the help of the EasyShoe Versa Grip Glue, we are getting his feet back on track.

May 1st: Hooves upon arrival.

May 15th: Hooves after first trim.

We applied the Versa Grip Glue to his front feet and the difference was instant. Before the Versa Grip Glue, he hobbled into the barn with bilateral lameness. After applying the shoes, he felt so good he wanted to run and buck in the arena after. This was the first time I got to see him do more than tiptoe around.

The light in his eye alone tells me we are doing the right thing, and I’m super excited for this guy’s makeover journey. It’s all about the challenge and the adventure, and it’s only just beginning for this cool horse.

Clyde Park is a 13 year old, 16h Chestnut Gelding. A true war horse running 102 races and aging out of racing. Stay tuned to see how he does at the RRP this fall.
