Are her feet extremely horrible, or just a bit long? Aires' feet hadn't been done in at least six months when I got him (his feet grow EXTREMELY slow, though...we can go three months between trims!), so he couldn't be put into "hard" work. We did a lot of trail walks and walking around the arena. Trail walks are exactly what they sound like. You halter your horse and go walking out on the trail. Aires loved it, it was a change of scenery for him (hadn't left his stall in six months because he decided he didn't like men and it was only men that did the turnouts and handled the horses), and it was great exercise for me.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
