Nobody's saying your horses can't go barefoot. We're saying not ALL horses can go barefoot. Even the barefoot trimmers are saying that. I'm going to ride my horse Gator to the North Pole and visit Santa Clause. I constructed some special "roller-skate horseshoes so we can just roll down the highway. If my calculations are correct, I figger we should reach speeds in excess of 130 mph going down a big hill. I made some stoppers that fasten to the back of the fetlocks so when he leans back, they'll produce drag and slow us down.

(Did anyone else click on the SARAHBELLBAREFOOTTRIMMING ad because she looks hot in the picture)???

Yep. I don't believe I'd let her trim my horse with an angle grinder though.

Iv pretty much come to the conclusion he's not going to be able to be barefoot the wear way exceeds the growth. Not sure boots are the anwser either would need boots for all four. If I made him go barefoot after two weeks of riding he would be so sore wouldnt be able to walk.

You're probably right, and boots are very expensive

Thanks to everyone who replyed. Iv decided to go with shoeing him its in his best interest so he not sore footed.After all he deserves only the best he's been my riding partner for 7 years. He's one awsome horse to ride gives 110 percent every ride so I owe it to him to give the best care money can buy. Heres a pic of him my pride and joy of going on 9 years.

I agree! My friend didn't like the way our barn farrier did her horse's feet, so she got these just so her horse's feet could harden. They worked really well!
They were a little hard to get on, because just like us, horse's feet are different sizes.
