Going barefoot

Going barefoot and my horse is a hunter/jumper. It's ok to jump a horse when they are barefooted right?

Yes! There are many horses who do eventing and all sorts of things barefoot, and at all different levels of competition.

Glad to be of service. By the way, if your horse is currently wearing shoes their will be some down time while he or she transitions to barefoot... but once that is out of the way you will have a very happy horse :]

If you wont have much down time, to allow him to be adjust to being bare foot.... You should by a pair of these... you can even event in them! I have tried may different types of hoof boots, but theses are the BEST and better priced to boot!

I'm not a fan of the cavallo boots. They don't stay on that great on some horses, and they can rub the pasterns. I have easy boot Edge boots for one of my horses. They are performing very well. Easycare has a line of boots, with one that will work for almost any horse. Check out the web site, easycareinc.com. Don't buy from them though, as their prices are "retail." Valleyvet.com and other stores list them cheaper.
