All horses are shod every 6 weeks with the special shoes needed to work on city streets. Our horses never work without leg wraps to protect their legs from injury. The horses are seen by the Veterinarian and Equine Dentist on a regular basis. They are groomed every day, rain or shine and get their 'treats' at the end of the day. Our horses are not just work animals, they are also our pets.
