Trim her properly, condition her feet and she wonąt be ouchy on the rocks anymore.

Umm....I do. I think that some of you fail to realize where I live and what I condition in. This is dry, rocky, mountainous land. These are not nice trails. These trails will eat a bare horse's hooves in no time flat. I ride and condition my mare just fine and for most situations she is fine. If I wanted to ride this mare 40 miles a week on these trails the shoes would have to go on. There are no absolutes for anyone. Not everyone here lives where it is soft and green or even just dry and hard. I'm talking rocks, lots of em.
I would never say all horses need shoes, so I find it equally ridiculous that you say all horses do not.
come ride with me on a barefoot horse sometime-I bet you'll be looking for some easyboots pretty quick.
