Some people think that they can get away with not shoeing their horses.But they also try to ride them on rocks and gravel.Then they wonder why the horse is lame or has bruising or abcesses on the sole of the foot.I keep telling my clients that if they are going to ride on the gravel or any rough terrain.That they need to at least need to put shoes on the front feet.Because pretty much all their weight is distibuted on the front feet.So thatr is were you need the protection most of the time.If your going to ride any other rough terrain to shoe all four feet.If you have a lame horse than you have no horse.That old saying NO FOOT NO HORSE.

Thanks Alot Guys
