In 2005, we asked a very basic question about our horses: “Why did they need shoes?” In the end, we decided the answer was “They don’t.” For many years, we relied on hoof boots and kept our horses barefoot. In 2017, Rob began shoeing and now offers barefoot and shoe options.
Rob is a hoof boot dealer for both Easy Care and Renegades and a stockist for Scoot Boots!
