Grass studs come in many different shapes depending on the surface. Using studs that are too long for a harder and more stable ground increases the risk of injury and wears out the horse. Likewise, studs that are too short for damp or soft ground can pose a safety risk as the horse might not get sufficient traction. This is a very general description, but considering these aspects when putting studs on a horse before a competition will guide you well.
