Do I Have To Have Shoes On My Horse?

Shoeing Prevents Hoof Cracks

If your horse has soft, or weak feet, then you really need to invest in regular shoeing, even if you don't ride on the roads or on rough, hard surfaces.

Soft or weak feet really do need the support of a shoe in order to maintain a healthy shape & condition.

Use a hoof oil or balsam daily on the hooves as well to help assist in eliminating moisture penetration, and to keep hooves from drying & cracking.
