Horse Riding in the Sun
Protect you and your horse from the sun and heat
Most horse riders have to endure whatever the weather brings, cold and wet or hot and humid, horse and pony lovers are out there. When it is set to be hot you need to give some thought about how to protect yourself (and your horse) from the sun.
If you are wearing correct riding clothes your skin will be mostly covered and safe from sunburn. The long sleeves which will protect your skin from grazing should you fall will also protect you from the sun`s rays. Your helmet will also protect your head.

5 Ways to Encourage Bare Hooves on Horses
Horseshoe-free hoof proponents can be very enthusiastic and are often devoutly committed to the theory of “natural is best.”
Often, natural is best. However, shaming people for putting shoes on their horses doesn’t fix anything, nor does discrediting farriers who are just trying to help keep horses sound.
The reasons for the prevalence of shoeing in modern horses is more complicated than many assume. It is rarely a simple issue of horse owners “being lazy” about their horse’s hoof care, nor is it about farriers trying to extract more money by putting shoes on every horse. (In fact, many farriers prefer trims because they’re faster, easier on the body, and require less supplies). More info...
