Navicular comfort

Shera Felde

Does anyone have great transition (boots?) ideas for a horse with navicular? It has been 1 year since diagnosis and I tried many boot/pad/barefoot combinations before giving up and having shoes put back on. I trim often but I couldn't get her comfortable with boots. She has a history of thin soles too.  I would really like to get rid of the shoes but I can't stand to see her so uncomfortable. Anyone had luck with a certain combination?  Our terrain is varied- wood, some rock, slope, deep dirt and pine cones. She is not being ridden for now.

Thanks for any suggestions.
