Her only hoof problem is slightly contracted and underrun heels. She has made a lot of progress and can handle a few rocks, but she will not be comfortable trotting over a bed of gravel.
I may change my mind about going. I have had several people advise me that this show isn't worth the money and that I should just wait and go to a St. Louis schooling show. This one is attractive because it's 20 miles from my house, but St. Louis would definitely be an overnight trip.
I wanted to add that as far as shoeing, there is the minor issue of not having a regular farrier. I know someone that does passable work, so he may be able to squeeze me in, but I trim her myself.
