Now that's what I call rock-crunching

Sometimes people think that because we live on Exmoor the ground we ride over is always soft - so this clip shows the other side of the terrain we go over. There are masses of tracks like this on the moor, and the barefoot horses walk, trot, canter or gallop over them.

The 2 horses in the film have both done many miles along tracks like these - and collectively our horses have done thousands of miles over the years.

Both the horses in this film came to us in shoes, and both had been long-term lame, one with navicular syndrome and one with check ligament injuries to both front limbs.

I am posting the HD footage here http://www.vimeo.com/10374491 so click on the link if you prefer to see it high definition ;-)
