I was talking to my farrier about having Grace (TB mare) go barefoot this summer. She said that she saw an article about Steeplechase horses going barefoot, and that we could try it. She would rather not put shoes on anyway, but she wants us to be safe. We are only eventing Beginner Novice this year, but if she's going really good we will go Novice.
Has anyone tried barefoot eventing? Or Seen someone with a barefoot eventer?
I have seen the damage (and how long it takes to get the hooves back to normal) done my shoes firsthand, and I don't want to throw away all of the work my farrier and I have done by putting shoes on her.
