Smart move Harry. I never claimed to be smart, so got a young Saddlebred gelding, thinking saddlebred might pick their feet up better. Lots of walking horses are daisy cutters by nature, or tend to stub their toes if not trimmed and shod regularly. And, lots of folks get a horse that needs help to gait well, rather than having a good gait barefooted. Regular shoeing and proper trims go a long way to helping stumblers. I still shoe my own at 76, and still have trouble with scooping the quarters, but i can't stand that 100 bucks for a shoeing job. All of you guys keep your head between their ears and a leg on either side.
Don't think he'll go all day, but then maybe I wont either at 76.
LOL As I've said, I quit riding at 75. I had come off a few times in my life and didn't want to chance it at that age.
