Modifying Kerckhaert Ranger Lite Rim for the Front of a Barrel Horse

Bobby Menker, CJF, APF-1, shapes a Kerckhaert Ranger Lite Rim to fit the front of a barrel horse. Easily shaped for front or hind, sole relief and excellent nail punching makes the Ranger Lite Rim a great shoe for trail and event horses.
