    Ugh! I don't want it to happen again without the bell boots. I wonder if we had more momentum (jumping or cross country) the boot or shoe would be pulled off (as they usually are).

    I'd be inclined to move him to your place for a trial run of 3 months. As you go and at the end re-assess and if you aren't happy with how it's going move him back to his old place and routine.

    I cannot resist.... Not wearing a helmet and using a martingale on a tripping horse are two of the stupidest things I've seen in a while. Someone is going to get hurt badly :cry:
