    Lol that's it. I wore boots yesterday just so I could prove my point and I nearly got trodden on. I am sooo aware of where my feet are when im in flip flops or even barefoot but as soon as those boots go on I feel invincible lol and yeah it doesnt effect my horses at all so I too will continue to do it :)

    I know a boarding/training barn that almost all the people that work there are barefoot. And they walk around the horses, clean stalls (something I personally wouldn't do), work with "problem" horses. I find it quite amazing actually.

    I have worn flip flops to the horses, but didn't do anything with them.

    JazzyRider!! Thanks so much for posting that movie up here!! Before I never knew how to make them turn b/c I'm not too experienced in training right now and I've got two 1 year olds that need training....all I currently am good at is bombproofing and your movie clip helped a lot in showing me how to lunge a horse on a line and you made it look so easy!! Your OTTB is really pretty!!

    Appy - I guess it all depends on your comfort level. Even though I respect my horses size I also know where there feet are going to be next and there is nothing I wont do barefoot (except ride in a saddle)

    Brittany - thanks :) im really glad that helped you. I will be doing a whole series of videos for the instructional video section on training an ottb which will help you with a bunch of stuff :)

    I have to agree with the footwear comments. I was scared to death that she was going to stomp on your foot. Also, a longer lunge line would be preferable.

    I have already gone through all this.

    All I am going to say is thank you for your opinion

    Jazzy - She is beautiful and moves fantastic. We free lunge when ever we can but my TBs know how to lunge on a line too but I suck at. I get dizzy.
    As for the flip flops. IMO it doesn't matter if you wear flip flops, tennis shoes or riding boots. A 1200lbs animal steps on your foot it is going to hurt and possibly do damage
    Wish you continued success with your training and enjoy your OTTB

    Wow I thought we had mods on here to take care of completely and uncalled for rude comments!!! Unbelievable....well anywhooooo

    Jazzyrider, my mother use to freak out all the time bc, at least you have flip flops on, I would be barefoot in a cement barn with fully shod horses....yup I got a few bangs and cuts and such. I do not condone this however I will still catch myself running out there barefoot to give ny girl a carrot and pull her out and bruch blah!!! I think she looks wonderful... my rescue mare will only go to the left...her world falls apart when we attempt to longe to the right...hahaha..keep up the great work!
