    [RC] [Guest] winter riding - Ridecamp Guest

    sue sue_jamaica@xxxxxxxxx
    I live in Minnesota and winter riding is difficult enough with the below
    freezing temps even when riding inside! My horse has no shoes in the winter
    however she gets this ice build up around the inside edge of her hooves. She
    is a pasture horse year round. I was wondering if any one knows how to get
    rid of the ice so shes not beeing ridden on stilts! Also when I do pick up
    her feet she trys to pull them away or dances around swishing her tail. Any
    remedies? I've tried everything. She also grinds her teeth when I girth her
    up,as if it hurts even though I do it slowly.
