Meet Simon Earle who is proving that even Thoroughbreds can compete in barefeet, at his naturalized farm for thoroughbred racehorses in England.
Photo to the right is Saucy Night, a true come-back story! One of many at Horses First farm.
If you are the competitive type, and think you can’t win on a horse in her own feet, living out with a herd…in other words being a Horse during her off time, think again.
In Paris, KY my friend, Maureen Gould, is rehabbing Money Talkin the natural way and reracing him. Let’s all cross our fingers that he is a huge success. You can read about his rehab and retraining at The Racehorse Experiment. Maureen is also raising a youngster, Zola, and will race her when the time is right.
Check out Cindy Sullivan’s site. The A-B-C’s of peak performance in barefeet and a natural lifestyle range from barrel racing, dressage, gaited horses to team roping and more.
I hope special boots for all competitions are around the corner. In padded boots or barefeet (depending on the situation), any horse is appreciably and competitively better than in shod feet.
