over the summer its almost impossible for me to wear shoes let alone boots. i know this is a terrible thing to do but summer no matter where we go i am barefooted. even riding. its just something i do. yes its a risk i take and yes i gladly take the risk. i have been stomped and jumped on barefooted and it barely left a mark. mainly because my horses know their cues to move off and do so when asked. and i also don't let them walk around in my space. when they are in my space they stand still. its just how it is. occasionally like when bathing horses. and one doesn't like being bathed and it rears. i've had one squash my foot with their back foot while rearing and jerking back, and i don't get even a bruise. maybe because im lucky, or maybe because i have tough feet? or maybe because all of my horses are barefoot. the world shall never know.
