    ^^ For example:
    River sand? Ok. Gravel/trail riding? No go.

    Naughty pony! It IS not right to ride missing shoes, but it does depend on what your riding on. If he's fine... he's fine.. and that's all that matters.

    Yeah, I asked my trainer and she said he was fine. I lunged him first to watch and I couldn't even tell he was missing it.

    Your trainer said yes?

    You were just in the ring, right?

    Yeah? I just rode in the ring for half an hour. He has solid feet and great balance so I wasn't too worried

    I would NEVER ride either my other horse or my parent's horse missing a shoe, they don't have very good feet or balance

    ^ I would trust your trainer as well. If he seemed alright, I am sure he was. Horses WILL let you know if something is wrong, or hurting them.

    I think one ride without a shoe won't kill him. And obviously, it didn't. You'll know if your horse is hurting. As long as you get it put back on as quickly as you can, you're okay. =]

    I, however, have not had to deal with my horse missing a shoe. She's shod all the way around 9 months out of the year, and hasn't lost one yet. I'm sure she will now, especially since I said something, haha. But so far so good. =]
