The Barefoot Horse


The Barefoot Horse, by Lucy Nicholas
With the price of horseshoeing climbing, more people are opting to let their horses go barefoot, particularly if they are just doing pleasure riding on soft trails, with horse boots for the few times they encounter stony trails. The author covers such topics as whether the horse can indeed go barefoot, who should trim the horse, how to transition from shod to barefoot, dietary requirements of barefoot horses, and horse boots and how to select them.
