Consider trying the Epona shoes. They really do a nice job of supporting the entire foot and absorbing concussion. Compared to some of the therapeutic eggbar/wedge pad combinations, they are not that expensive. I personally love them for horses that can't quite go barefoot . Whatever you decide, the ultimate comfort and soundness of your horse is far more important that hoof care ideology. You may need to experiment to find what works best, but a talented farrier will help you with that choice. Good luck!
When you get the radiographs done, post them if you feel like it
