    Hey Cassie!
    This may be a silly question, but when you have a horse with hooves such as your new horse McCoy’s, and although they aren’t perfect they are sound, do you still work/ride her with her feet like this? Or do you wait until the hooves are closer to the wild hoof to begin work/riding?
    Sorry if this makes no sense!
    Thanks in advance,

      Hi Phoebe– If the horse is sound after the trim, I don’t see a problem working them. I wouldn’t have worked McCoy with the long, chipped hooves, since that could have increased the likelihood of causing problems in the foot, leg, or even body, but after she was trimmed, no problem. I’ve had her for two years now and with monthly trims, her hooves have improved quite a bit!
