Sigh, the press is attempting to offer some fun news, but when they say that someone "wisely" opted for sandals as appropriate riding footwear (even though their point was that she wasn't in high heels), I do get exasperated.

Just had to do this personally last Friday - good info for all as my horse had no changes to his work or t/o but within 36 hours was in major discomfort.  He's well on the mend now (Early detection, Soft Ride Boots and ice to the rescue)!

For those that are fortunate enough to live in areas that offer exceptional trail riding (or even not so exceptional), the chance to get out of the arena is good medicine for horse and rider - but it truly takes collaboration and cooperation to make it all "work".

 

Well done to these folks!
