    Breeding/Riding conflict

    I am running into a conflict between breeding season and the need to have my stallion shod so that I can compete on him in shows and trail rides (we have a lot of rocky areas around here).

    Does anyone else have this conflict? If so, what are the options?

    Do I have his shoes reset every time I breed him? Is there some other protective gear that has been created for this situation?

    Breeding season is show/event season here. I would love some feedback from anyone who knows about or deals with this problem.

    Help :)

    Sorry, I keep my stallions unshod. I wonder if you covered them with easyboots if that would protect the mare?

    Thanks for the reply. I spoke with the vet about it, who acaully suggested the easy boots. She also said that she has not known the shoes to be an issue if care is taken to keep the stallion from striking out...she said to wait until he and the mare are fully ready before approaching. My stallion is actually not a huge striker anyway. I think the easy boots may be a good idea. I would hate to have shoes reset for every breeding!

    Also, up here, I really need to continue riding and competing him in activities - he will not have a large foal crop any year simply due to the smaller horse population. Riding him in public is a good way to let people see him, how he does, etc. As his foals begin to hit the ground and show what he passes on, it will become less of an issue :)
