sorry, but none of the barefoot people I know up here actually ride more than the odd 20minutes here and there.
sorry, but none of the barefoot people I know up here actually ride more than the odd 20minutes here and there.I photograph endurance all the time and only one or two pleasure riders use boots.I'm really not having a go (well, maybe a bit ) but I havent seen anything about 'barefoot' that would convince me my horse could do the job I want if barefoot. and yes, my horse has a job-if that makes me a bad owner then so be it-I dont think anyone who has met me or him doubts that he is well appreciated.
show me a boot I can stick on mine that will enable me to go over any terrain, for as long as I want without rubbing , get my horse to survive Scottish weather without being footy when I want to ride on anything other than a surface or turf, get me boots to fit my exmoor with feet wider than long and I'll think about it!
think you're a bit further north ....but i agree with the Oi!
The farrier I have at the moment does a lovely job, but is completely unreliable in terms of turning up. Not just on time (I realise they live in some sort of wierd world world where time is elastic) but actually turning up in the first place. I book him every time he comes in advance of his next appointment, but I still find my '6 weeks' to end up being stretched to 7, and in one case as much as 9 weeks
Bloody norra, I shouldn't get into discussions like this...I ended up dreaming about farriers last night..and not in a good way
my last vets practices was the same....you could wait a whole day and he wouldn't arrive till 5 pm. At least the practice I'm with now give you an approx time and then gives you a phone when he's about to leave.
I don't actually 'know' you or your horses (you and Mandeigh)
