Barefoot is best – look at some bare-foot websites to see how blood circulation will be improved in the hoof, and see how the hoof actually flexes as it hits the ground. There is so much to learn about how the hoof was created to take care of itself – this natural functioning of the hoof is stopped by a iron horseshoe.

The limitations are when the horses job creates the necessity for the protection of a shoe, and the fact some horses really can not adapt to barefoot
