(newbie) questions....my gelding is barefoot, terrible hooves - doesn't hold shoes (way long story) but we've compromised with me trimming him weekly. I know as we leave behind the soft arenas for rougher terrain I am concerned about his feet. I've used easy boots with gators out on trails but with alot of riding through water they can rub.
what are the rules for covering hooves? Can I use some easy boot glue-ons?
I assume you can't leave on for the dressage tests
how is your grip or do they just hinder the horses etc.
My endurance friends all use them but they're not at the pace a x-c rider needs.
I apologize in advance if this is a silly Q but I want to make sure my boy stays sound.
