I received some great pictures from one of our Hoof Boot Contest competitors. Lyn Summerfield and her daughter Kym are entered in our Easycare Hoof Boot Contest. They do a lot of competitive miles on their barefoot and booted horses. They compete at some of their events completely barefoot.
“We successfully completed our State Championship 160 km ride last weekend with my daughter. It was interesting that there were only 16 starters over the full ride. Of those only 6 finished; 3 wore boots (2 glue ons and 1 gaitered) and 1 went completely barefoot and 2 had metal shoes.”
Thanks for sharing with us and our readers, Lyn. Riders around the world are utilizing natural barefoot and using hoof boots to keep their barefoot equine partners healthy.
