Sorry he lost a shoe...I know how that goes...I've had little shoeing experience but when I did have a horse who needed corrective shoes, he was CONSTANTLY losing one here and there, especially if I was late in scheduling his 8 week reset! Uggghhh...Lol!

I asked my uncle(he is a farrier), he said light riding with a lost shoe is ok, but he did say it is important to get it fixed it as soon as possible. =]

So, sheesh, stop freaking out over her loosing ONE shoe.

And we have a big grey gelding who ALWAYS looses a shoe. He has such hard hooves, so one shoe ain't that bad. :P

No it doesn't. If you had on a pair of sneakers, even ones with thin soles, and you lost one, it doesn't matter how well you adapt to it or how high your level of pain is - it effects you.

Loosing a shoe puts your horse off balance and effects not only his hoof but his shoulder and back. In the pasture without a saddle or rider, you can get away with it for a short time but not being ridden. You are better off removing the other shoe. Just because your horses doesn't seem to be affected by the loss of the shoe, he is.

BTW, the shoe that just came off will most likely have a twist in it from being pulled off so a farrier will be needed to balance the shoe and correct any damage to the hoof.
