I learned a great tip from my Blacksmith today. :D

Daughter's horse had new front shoes on - after discussing cross country - he gave me the old front shoes to carry to events incase the horse lost one at a competition - thus having a 'spare' at the ready to use.....:cheekywink:

When we have new backs (he need his fronts doing more often than his backs!)... I'll keep those too.....!:pmsl:

Anyone else do this? Or have I helped anyone with this valuable tip? :innocent:

We have spare sets for that reason. However your post has reminded me to put them back in the lorry, they're currently in the basement so they'd not go rusty in the lorry over the winter. Not much use having a spare set at home when you're out competing!

lol, it's like taking a spare tyre!

Very sensible though.

Yup i have spares, currently only three though, as had to use a front one! I also like to change them everyso often for a newer set incase his feet have changed shape. Havent had any for a while though as the good pony has had refits!
