Sorry, allow me to explain.
Yes, they were. This was the first time (that I know of) that they ever used shoes. They thought the shoes would help the horse's ligaments from the arena which is mostly sand, and our tractor can't till it deep enough for it to do anything worth while we do polo as well, to clarify that point.
They had another event in october that they had to go to, at the end. I don't know what all happened during that time, as I was in NY. But I do know that they have made efforts to contact the farrier but were unable to have him out here.
It was not done purposefully or with malicious intent. I think they were just ignorant, as the owner is not as horsey knowledgable as her family members, who are on the other side of the state.
