Yep, all for it. Nails through a hoof wall are one of the more minor 'cons' about conventional metal shoes IME. However, I advise you to educate yourself as best you can in order to make a fully informed decision. There are also a few different approaches and different considerations to consider. Learn all you can about hoof form & function & about all the other factors that effect hoof health - of which to shoe or not is but one of many considerations. Learn the pros & cons of some different approaches. I suggest hoofrehab.com barefoothorse.com & barehoofcare.com are 3 great places to start - among many other sites & resources.
To shoe or not is one thing, but depending on those other factors - management, diet, environment, etc, it may not be possible for your horse to cope with everything you want of him bare. But these days there are a lot of good hoof boots available, which I believe are far superior to metal nail on shoes. You also only use them when needed - eg an overly long or rough trail ride - and the horse can remain bare for the majority of time. Eg. When I first 'went natural' my horses were living & working on rocky ground, poor pasture and I was riding/playing with them a lot. Never had an issue. Only booted one horse for the first few months(a flat footed TB fresh out of shoes). But now my horses are on cushy, too good pasture. They also don't get anywhere near the amount of exercise outside that they used to, as I have young kids. I now find that they all need boots on rough ground.
It's essential that the horse is well and frequently trimmed. 4-6 weeks is about average for a trim schedule. Either a good farrier or a good hoofcare practitioner can do it, but there are bad examples under every banner, who may do your horse more harm than good. The above websites should give you a reasonable idea of the principles, so that you have a good idea whether some 'expert' of choice is doing a decent job or not. Most factors of hoofcare - diet, exercise, management, etc are down to you as an owner, not the trimmer. Altho a good hoof care practitioner will explain & help you decide on the best solutions all round.
