  Yep.... VBG...  I was off doin stuff at my house... Woo whoo.   (long story) You can sneak in with tennies if you ride english.... because the whole stirrup comes off if you fall and get your foot caught.  But its best to have a riding shoe or paddock boots.  Those are short and zip up and look like a dress shoe if you wear long pants. The only time I ever caught a foot was riding on a bareback pad that had stirrups....  It was a nano second but I saw my life run through...
I used to take my horse swimming in a sand pit behind the barn....  About a thousand feet away from the trail access was a place where big sand scoopers would dig up the sand to sell and it left a lake of sorts.  The water from the San Diego river was just under the sand about three feet so when you dug a deep hole it would fill up with water.  Wed take the horses out there and the bottom was firm and not slimy....  There was a rock out there wed swim out to and I would...

For what its worth The advice I give to people who want to get their kids involved with horses is:   Find a good childs trainer They will teach both you and the child about what is safe They will have a child safe horse to learn on. They will have rules that are never to be broken.   Always wear hard toed shoes with a slick sole and a heel.  Cowboy boots or riding shoes can be bought second hand for children.  Sneakers are not allowed. Always wear Hard hat when...
