Re: RC: Re: Re: barefoot
The point is, trails that bruise some shod horses will be even more likely
to bruise the bare foot horse, no matter how the horse has been trimmed.
Shoeing doesn't prevent every bruise, but it helps.
And, I don't consider horses wearing boots to be "bare foot".
I have confused riding a horse without shoes with the religion of "Barefoot"
which is a whole nuther thing, apparently.
