This video is from "La tete au Carre", a French radio scientific documentary on four reasons why horses should not be shod. This report is amazing - their study found that the life expectancy of a shod horse is half that of an unshod horse. Think about this: the horse is the only animal into which we pound nails into!
Note: at the 1:04" point in the video, the translated voice-over talks about 'nails' when they are actually talking about 'hooves'.
For terrain where your barefoot horse needs a little extra protection for his hooves, don't forget your Easyboot Gloves or Easyboot Glue-Ons.
