Can this make my horse feel too good?

Yes.  Not all horses will be able to go out and run and play after the correct pad for the given situation is applied.  There are horses that do feel well enough to go out and run and play.  We don’t want any horse that is recovering to be able to do this.  If your horse when on a lead line feels too good please lower the pad density by one or two.  If you are using an 8 lbs please try a 6 or 4 lbs. density.  You don’t want to create more damage by them going out and doing too much too soon.
