I would like my gelding to stay barefoot for the riding season problem is his feet wear off faster then they grow. I only trail ride six days a week 3 to 4 hours a day. The ground is rocky in places and just hard packed sand on most trails. We share the trails with four wheelers who rip around at full speed.Iv been having him shod all four and after seven weeks shoes are worn out like broke in half or paper thin. So would it even be possible to keep him barefoot or am iam just going to need shoes. We do alot of trotting I say out of three hour we spend two and half of that trotting. Our horses are super fit not an ounce of fat on them. My farrier says their what he calls racing fit or he calls them the lean mean running machines. Right now their not being riden much do to snow but in the next month or so we will be riding again.My gelding has good feet no cracks splits and they get trimed regular all year round summer every 7 weeks winter every 10 weeks.Sometimes in summer I have them done every 6 weeks because the shoes wear out. Any help would be nice thanks.
