Quick Tip # 89 Dealing With The Pain
Seems sort of silly to point this out but I suspect that I am not the only person with this problem. Your shoes/boots must be perfectly comfortable if you are going to work horses twelve hours a day.
We all understand that having even a bit of discomfort in the horse's hooves transfers to problems with the entire horse. The same is true of the trainer. If your feet hurt the rest of your body will quickly give those feet company in their pain.
Chronic foot discomfort can wreck other parts of the body. Go look up the great pitcher Dizzy Dean on the computer. His incredible pitching arm was destroyed when he broke his toe.
We are rained out from riding today and I am going to take the oportunity to go get some footware that will make it possible to move in comfort.
