    Para, hope your horse's shoes are well padded too then! There are more - & IMO often far better - options than conventional rims, when protection is required. Yes, if he's got thin soles/sensitive feet, making him go bare isn't a good move, but rims alone don't protect soles or help grow stronger feet.

    Loosie, sometimes I am not able to express my words very well. On that note I think since there are stones most everywhere that he didn't mean it in the sense that I could really ride him for the next week or so. We did talk about pads but since we are trailering a few hours away in a couple weeks I asked if he would be more likely by then to lose the shoes due to the pads and he agreed that it might, so I elected to just to ride him the front pasture lightly and just the dirt trail that leads from the barn. BUT I didn't really want to take any chances so I tried the boots and they fit. He did great all weekend with 0 issues and we did trailer out locally both weekend days.
    Like I said he advised using the venice of turpentine on the soles to toughen them up.
    I really don't care about ruining the boots although they are not damaged at all I wouldn't care as long as his feet are protected. I also told of him telling me that we should always be aware of where we are riding/unloading and other places that rocks are.
    I hope I have answered your questions and I appreciate your knowledgable advice! Thank you.:)
