Sadie is a 2003 Belgium Warmblood that had shoes on the front that were impeding her lovely natural movement when we bought her. So I pulled the shoes and trimmed off the flares left by the former farrier and she immediately moved like a dream. Thankfully, she had not had years of poor farrier work so she has never been unsound. Sadie is my husband, Greg Scott's, horse. That's Sadie's right forefoot in the picture in the left hand upper corner, taken 6-28-10. Note how nice, big and round they are for a 16.3 hand horse. Greg had to have a pacemaker put in and can no longer compete at jumping so the video is of a friend, Michelle Mahoney, showing Sadie in 2011. Greg tried to show Sadie in 2012 but his heart cannot take the strain. So we are looking for a rider for Sadie since Michelle has become a professional rider and is too busy. Sadie is very competitive and no one even notices that she is the only barefoot horse in most classes. UPDATE: Sadie competed at HITS Culpeper in September 2014 and won a class of 43 horses.
