I don't like to ride him on those types of trails, but sometimes I don't know about the terrain before hand. Usually he is just the trail horse for my little cousin or if I need a solid mount for somebody who doesn't know what to do.
I've been talking to my mom about going on trails with me this summer because I hate going alone
. I don't really want to put shoes on him because It will make him arthritis flare up again. So I guess I might try the sole guard once and if it works great if not ill try some boots.
So what kind of boots do you guys like or suggest. I've never had any experience with them but I've rode with people who have them.
