I have rather short nails naturally, so fake nails look nice, but are not practical to me! Lol! I had them once a few years ago. I was riding my instructor's haflinger pony with his big thick mane. When came to jumping that day, my nails were pretty much gone! Lol.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. ~Author Unknown

I have had fake nails for the last 2 years and I love them. I couldn't do without. I work with Cobalt, rode my trainer's horse and I work in the hospital setting with no issues whatsoever.

I rode with fake nails after a ball and I had a jumping lesson so I put on gloves because I thought it would help them not get caught....when I finished the lesson and took my gloves off the nails were still in there!!!! groooossss.

I used to have acrylic nails and I rode with them and I had no problems. I didn't have the nails that long in length so I'm sure that helped.
