Much of the training was done barefoot.
She did 200 race miles barefoot in difficult trerrain.
You cannot compare gule ons to steel shoes.
The glue ons allow the hoof to function naturally as opposed to the ridgid steel.
At 885 + miles the hoof does need protection.
We have found that the 21 century technology works better than the technology born literally in the dark ages.
No responsible person would ever say horses never need protection,obviously sometimes they do.
This horse could not walk without protection when her shoes were pulled. Weak digital cushion, underdeveloped lateral carilidges, thin, flaky walls, thin soles, and sensitve heels. These feet are getting better daily, rather than the downward trend that they were on.
And no, there will be no apologies for making the point that there is an option other than iron.
The Best Condition awards say it all.
I accept the fact that you will continue to rip me up.
That is fine
