Because of the disadvantages of iron horseshoes I prefer to keep my horse on bare feet. She's got good feet and she is doing fine on sandy roads, however, I fear that riding endurance races without any feet protection will not work. After all, during competition you can't pick the footing.

I don't belief in horse boots. They slip off, change the break-over point, cause irritation to the skin ...

I wish there was something like a thin sole that one could stick to the feed just before a competition and that you could remove easily, without damage, after competition. The horse should hardly feel any difference...

If you are endurance-rider in The Netherlands, you might check the information about this on www.endurance-forum.nl
That is a dutch forum with much information about endurance in general and a lot topics about footwear for horses.
Maybe you can find some valuable information there.

Is this maybe an idea? At: http://www.hoofcare.com/newproducts4_0599.html

Techniques are in place these days for companies like DuPont or 3M to invent high grade Teflon or/and Kevlar Horse shoes. In the
semiconductor industry I have seen fantastic synthetic materials which can withstand very brute stressess when used in machines.
