I voted yes. Although I only have shoes on her front feet. She is not balanced withough the shoes, and she gets terrible stone bruises if barefoot, (as in very lame). She is ok with her hind feet, it's just the fronts.
Since I got a good farrier, who put thicker shoes on her fronts, Christy has stopped having back pain, has stopped bucking (as much
,) and trots, gallops and plays in her corral a lot! I have also discovered since she has proper shoes that she is gaited! Yipee! She has an intermediate 4 beat trot.
Super smooth, and super fast. :o
It's great when they can go barefoot. But sometimes they need shoes.
