IME, not long. In fact, when I first tried to transition my guy to no shoes (not saying barefoot since I HATED the barefoot trimmer I tried), we pulled the shoes and horse was ouchy for 2 weeks. I finally saw no improvement and just put the shoes back on. He was fine once they were on. I rode him that day. I finally did transition him, but only by letting the foot grow untl the shoe was nearly falling off. Then we pulled it, cleaned up the edges so they wouldn't chip, and he has been without shoes ever since.(other than when I put his sliders on). About 18 months now.
