Yet another horse has fallen. Would you risk your wonderful mount for the sake of a demonstration or a competition? I live with ice and snow half the year and absolutely no one rides when the footing is icey. No one. I don't care if they say they put ice shoes on them. Look at the above picture... Special shoes aren't good enough.
I am actually amazed that there haven't been louder complaints from animal rights groups about Ice Tolts. I suspect it will only be a matter of time.
