what type of shoes to use?
I have a question on shoeing my mare im geting into stock horse shows with her and will be doing rening, and cow work. She will slide 3 feet now bearfoot but im also going to be doing barrels on her I know I have been told a lot that I shouldint run her in barrels as well and that it will make her hot but I pride myself in having horses that are calm and controlible in the ally but can still burn the barn down win asked and then calmly drop there head and walk out whin done. So what type of shoes would you recomend her having or should I just leave her bearfoot? Im not realy looking for a big stop altho I think she would do it. We have only been doing this since Jan. She's a 6 year old paint mare so were also not doing any furturity type stuff.
