Travel With an Extra Set of Horse Shoes
By Joe and Penny Most, equine clinicians and owners of Perfect Partners Equine
We suggest to all of our trail riders that they carry a spare set of horseshoes with them when they go on trips. You can ask your farrier to set you up with a set in case you lose a shoe or need a replacement. When you are out on the trail or in a campground it is unlikely there will be a farrier on hand who has a large supply of shoes with them, but you can usually find a farrier in camp or close by that can easily tack a new pair on if you have them with you. This way you will have a matched set of shoes for the rest of your ride and that will improve your horse’s comfort.
