That makes sense, but I stil didn't get to try the exercse ;( So rainy and yucky makes me not feel like riding!!
As for the road deal, Sharon has been cantering and trotting horses (with shoes and Shock Tamer Pads on) on the roads for years and years, and her old horses (19 and 20) have serious arthritis and problems. They're legs look nasty. It just doesn't pay. I don't canter for long stretches at all, and try to keep to the fields and trails, but around here you have to go on the roads sometimes. each to their own opinion.
Hey everybody, thanks for your advice!! For those of you who warned me that Sweet Pea will be tender, don't worry. She has had her shoes off for weeks at a time already, and she has very tough hooves. I'm not worried about that. What I'm worried about is the roads, and the farrier's trim. I got a very interesting email from a lady who does barefoot, in response to my question about letting Sweet Pea go barefoot. She told me the farrier has to trim the hooves different, and if he doesn't she said I should just find a trained barefoot farrier or learn how to do it myself. But I would be sort of scared that I would mess her hooves up.
Thanks for your comments. I'm borrowing "The Soul of a Horse" book from RuthAnn, can't wait to read it. Gotta get going and respond to my other blogs ;)
