Re: [RC] [RC] Re:RC What Shoes Really Do - Chris Paus

I wouldn't say this is necessarily so. Last year, a friend was riding my gelding who is shod. I was riding my mare who has been barefoot all her life. Both horses are agile as cats on hills. We had to ride down a very slick hill,... it had rained thenight before.


The shod horse went down that hill just fine. My barefoot mare lost her footing and she and I slid down the hill on our sides, my left leg under her body. Luckily neither of us was hurt.

There goes that theory.

 Barefoot horses are also more surefooted because they can actually "feel" where they are placing their feet. Even a horse wearing (properly fitted) boots feels more surefooted to me.
