quiet horseshoes?

I have a problem with sensitive hearing due to shooting guns. I know its messed up but its what I am trying to deal with.

Anyway metal shoes are too loud, I tried the ground control plastic shoes and they are still just a bit too loud. Now I do own a pair of boots and they work but I am just looking for a cheaper solution if I can. I am wondering if there is anything else out there that others have tried.

Thanks in advance for your replies and to those who have already helped me.

Maybe you could wear earplugs?

^^That would also be my suggestion. Pretty much anything else (other than barefoot) is either going to be just as loud or much more expensive.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

And without getting into it completely, just know that ear plugs and muffs don't work. And honestly who would want to ride like that all day. The boots do work I am just looking for other alternatives.

I have also made some shoes out of rock crusher conveyor belting which seem to be working but they are just an experiment still at this point.
