I thought this post was great, especially in how "unique" and "interesting" it seemed. A horse without shoes! Competing! In Hunters! To me, not all that amazing, but it is great, and this is what I hope to do with Jetta, potentially if we can ever figure out how to go semi-slow and not at a full out gallop ;) Interesting that horses usually get their shoes pulled before going into the flat class. Hmm... Never heard about that but it will be a lot easier on a horse that doesn't have shoes to begin with!
