I have a young mare, she's three and a half and has never been shod. She's an egyptian arab with feet made of rocks lol.
A friend of mine (and the girl at my barn) ride their horses barefoot and put shoes over top.
My endurance friend rides her mare in easyboot gloves, then at races uses glue on shoes. I would love to eventually start endurance with my mare, once she is old enough.
Right now I am leaning towards booting my horse. We live in south eastern PA and where I ride it is rocky and muddy in the winter time.
What do you guys think? I think the boots (in the long run) are cheaper... but some would argue otherwise.
Does anyone have any suggestions on boots to use?
Can anyone tell me the pros/cons of both?
