Hey guys,

Just wondering, what do you pay for a farrier job with sliders on the back and normals on the front? I'm advancing in my reining and am interested in this. Of course, I have to ask my farrier if he has every shoed a reiner before, as I don't want him to do it if he never has before. At my barn, we are allowed to have hind shoes on as my horse already does. The horses in my horse's pasture, of which there are 4 or 5, including my horse, rarely fight (not saying they never do) as the pasture is very large for them all to spread out in. The entire pasture (and the whole property) is completely flat and has good drainage so that there would never be any chance of him sliding by accident. I'll have to take it slow at first and restrict turnout when it gets really really icy or slick outside.

I pay mine 100-120 for custom made they are 1 1/2 inches.
My horse never has a problem with winter and its pretty slick here but I still watch him.

I pay $125 with custom plates. I limit turn out when they are on to the arena and a small paddock. As soon as the season is over - off they come. If you are not showing in the winter, I don't see the need to have them on. They freak me out!

I agree ...

I didn't realise that your horse was in a pasture- we only leave them on when they are in a stall... :)
