All my horses are barefoot, regardless of what I'm doing with them. If the horse's hoof can handle being barefoot, it's best that they are, IMO.
However, I won't do anything unnatural to encourage action. To me, trimming hooves in an unbalanced manner falls under that. Not worth it to me. If you're going to be leaving them long, just make sure they're still balanced.
