Went riding today with some good friends and enjoyed being out on the trail . Remember to say up on your horses feet so come spring if you want shoes on it is a lot easier to get them nailed on when your horses hooves are not way out of balance. Just always a good ideal to stay on a regular schedule weather you are riding barefoot or want shoes or your horse needs shoes. You can make it sometimes a little longer between appointments in the winter but I try to stay 6To 8 weeks in spring summer, and fall and 8 to 12 weeks in the winter, every horse is a little different. So no matter when or where your riding I say happy trails to you

Just a reminder to stay up on having your horses feet trimmed. It makes it so much healthier for the horse to help maintain a good growth pattern on there feet and so if you want to do a lot of riding in the spring you can get shoes on. One of the frustrating things is when you work on horses feet all spring and summer and you get there feet where you like them to be or what we call balanced and you have made improvements, come next spring you lose the foot or balanced or the improvements you made on that horses and get to start over on that horse, it can be upsetting to see and very frustrating to lose what you gained or improved on that horse, good steady improvements in anything as pay off for the good a health diet and not standing in 6 inches of mud p**p and urine 24/7 will help your horse have the best feet possible.

Some pictures of Shawnee national forest. I was blessed to get away and ride with friends out of state for the first time. And hope to keeping ride more of Indiana and the surrounding states. You can really enjoy your self on a good horse, one that is healthy, sound with a good foundation of good feet, hooves, and good bone on straight legs. If you are going to ride 10 to 25 miles a day you need a good horse and always helps to have a good farrier. I love to trail ride. I will be real honest with people when I thing their horse needs a lot to stay sound or has soundness issues if I thing the horse will have trouble staying sound to trail ride 2 or 3 days in a row. Lots of times just old injures in the knee or hock and fetlock and poor hoof quality which can be helped with good diet,but sometime it just poor breeding or horses that just did not turn out very good feet and legs conformation. So again when looking at Horses to buy legs and hooves are so important.

Really wanting warmer weather so we can go riding. Here's just a tip for getting your horse's hooves prepared for a good riding season.
First thing you can do is give a hoof supplement or a good mineral supplement. There's a lot of choices out there and a lot of reading about it. Most of the time if a horse is missing something in their diet, it will show in hoof quality and their coat. I like to use omega horse shine, Blackoil sunflower seeds, and a mineral supplement. Again there's a lot of information on the web about this. You can also use a good ration balancer. I like tribute feeds, essential K. Just be careful not to over supplement. These are all things you as a horse owner can do before any farrier shows up at your barn.
Also, it's a good idea not to have your horse standing all day in 6 inches of mud and manure. The mud is hard to avoid at times, but urine and manure eat away at the hoof wall and long periods of time in wet conditions make a soft hoof. On the other end, it's best to avoid really dry conditions also so the hoof doesn't dry out and crack. Spending a lot of time on dry pine shavings and bathing with soap too often can take a lot of natural oil out of a horse's coat and hooves.
One last thing, have your horse trimmed every 6 to 12 weeks, so their feet are not a total wreck come spring. This is really helpful if you want shoes put on. Sometimes it takes farriers maybe only one time of trimming to get that horse's hoof where you want it shape wise, balanced with no flares. However, this process could take 2- 6 trims if the owner has stopped getting their horse's hooves trimmed for 4 to 6 months, causing a possible delay to your spring riding plans. Overall, it's best to keep your horse's hooves in shape and balanced all year round.
Thank you; hope this is helpful info.

Just a few tips for people, when looking to buy a horse always remember to look at there hooves first. Learn what makes good hooves, what they should look like and good hoof wall thickness. The cannon bone should come down in the middle. No hoof no horse. Call if you want more info. It's so important to start with a healthy hoof.
