The Pony Podcast


Jun 2, 2020

Now if you're anything like us, the only things you've heard about "the Barefoot Brigade" is every now and again when someone pops up on social media and tells you that shoes are cruel, bits are evil and riding makes you a horrible person. We wanted to set the record straight and get some real information on the subject. Nailing metal onto their feet is one of the oldest practices we have when it comes to working with horses, it was around before the Romans and predates bridles, stirrups and saddles! 

Enter Krista Jones, down-to-earth, logical and altogether lovely she spoke to us about the concept of keeping your pony barefoot, what you need to consider and what it might mean for their workload - enjoy!
