I've ridden bikes as my everyday transport for most of my life, I didn't own a car until my 30's and I'm still affiliated to a couple of ..well let's describe them as, moderately serious lifestyle biker clubs (backpatch, if you know anything about that world).

Re: Barefoot trimmer not equine podaitrist

I'd hate to prove you wrong Wotsit but I 'admit' it. Some horses, in some situations, go better with shoes. It's probably not as many as you might think (1-2 in a 100) but every now and then I'll advise a client to find the best farrier around, shoe the horse and get on with it. There is usually a g...
