Generally shoeing is every 6 weeks, and trimming too uless you have one that has good feet , you can let it go to 8. But just watch and see how they are looking. Don't forget your grooming essentials. A nice soft brush (used mostly around face area and i use if horse isn't real dirty), a little stiffer bristle brush ( body , legs, etc. you can imagine where it would not feel good) a cury comb ( removes dirt well, and used on body , removes hair too but i like shedding blade better), And i like a shedding blade for when winter coats come off. I just use a regular hair brush for mane and tale. Don't give them water if the are hot after exercising and riding. Let them cool down first. Don't over feed them. Hope this helps some. Any thing else just let me know.
