I just use him for trail-rides and pleasure-rides... Sometimes we can be gone all day and sometimes we can be gone only fifteen minutes or so. I usually ride him about once or twice a week when I am working him... but this Fall/Winter I want to ride him at least three, maybe four times a week.
Should I go ahead and get him shod this mid-August/Spetember? Or should I wait until he's older?
Also, how shall I go about making sure he's ready for his first shoeing? He's just fine for me to trim his hooves, but the last time my farrier came out and looked at his hooves, my boy gave him some trouble with not wanting to pck his legs up and kinda kicked out a bit... I'm not really sure how to fix it, since he's really good for me to do anything with his hooves.
