Abbey hasn't had metal shoes on her feet since shortly after she came to me. Mostly she does just fine with her hooves bare. She manages the stony driveway, and the very rough lane through the trees.. however one ride we do occasionally involves a stone track that has been repaired with big rough stones and she just can't walk on them.. so the choice was not to go there or to try boots. She had them on for 20 minutes today for a wee wander round, they seem fine, she didn't seem bothered with them at all and there were no obvious rubbed spots. Cavallo Simple Boots
Abbey and I have sucessfully completed Level One with Quantum Savvy Natural Horsemanship.
I am currently still able to access Parelli through a friend who is a member and hope to be able to use that learning platform for as long as possible though they are unfortunately stopping shared memberships as I understand it.
