Having never owned my own horse before... I never gave much thought to hoof trimming and shoeing.
Now, I am leasing a trail horse.
His owner cautioned me that he is sore after hoof trimming and that I need to wait several days before riding again...and that this is normal every time the horse is trimmed.
This doesn't sound right to me...
I can't recall ever having to wait several days after a horse was trimmed or shod unless there was a specific hoof problem.
