Re: Re: barefoot

(i.e., "I believe it is cruel to compete a horse barefoot").  This seems to
be stepping into the
veterinarian role, IMO.  I believe a ride manager, knowing the terrain and
of said ride course, has an obligation to alert potential riders that "shoes
pads, are strongly suggested".

I can understand that "hoof protection" such as easyboots, horsneakers, or
some kind of hoof boots may be required for a particular ride. But alerting
riders to shoe their horses with pads? My "barefoot" endurance horses are
just as protected, if not better protected with easy boots (or some sort of
hoof boots) than shoes or pads. Plus it is much more healthier for them and
better for their feet.
