Yes, I think she was concerned about the slipping part, which I totally agree with, but I wasn't sure about the effects on the horse's legs, shins, hoofs, etc. I remember when I was little (12 y/o) I was riding with a little friend of mine and we turned off the road onto our driveway, which was concrete, her horse slipped, fell on her, and broke her pelvis. Not a pretty sight. I think I would like it better if my horse was not shod, but he came that way. What are the pros and cons of both ways?
