Haha that sounds like me! I know it's a bad idea, and I won't condone it for a minute, but I'm almost always barefoot around horses. And what you said is completely true, you are much
more aware of the ground, your horse, and your feet when you're not wearing boots. It doesn't affect the horse, the activity, or your horsemanship; it's your personal choice.
Yes, I know it's dangerous and asking for trouble, and yes, I'll keep on doing it.
