This is a fun relaxing time for the horses and have never had a problem. Plus if you go through water it can cause problems. Also if you are working hard for long periods of time it can cause a lot of heat which can be bad.
    Okay, great, thanks!

    Naw, I don't think you'll need them. Unless you're hauling ass down a trail and throwing on the brakes without warning, you'll be fine. Just transition between gaits for a stop instead.
