Non-Trotting Shoeing Requirements:

Our Non-Trotting Division is open to all gaited breeds. Come on out with your gaited horse that’s barefoot or flat shod with keg shoes. All gaited breeds are welcome! Help us bring back our Non-Trotting Division in a positive way, and let’s have some fun!

Our shoeing and device regulations for Non-Trotting exhibitors are simple: Keg shoes or barefoot. No pads or hoof bands. No devices allowed on the show grounds: no boots, collars, chains, rollers, hoof extensions, caustic substances, etc. No weights or pads stacked and inserted and then tightened with metal bands. We do not allow techniques used to accentuate the non-trotting horses’ natural, inherited gaits. Entries will not be rewarded for exaggerated gaits and may be excused from the ring. Show management retains the right to refuse any entry. Please see our 2021 Rulebook for complete Non-Trotting shoeing restrictions, regulations and credo.
