I ride my mare barefoot, but I'm ridig out more but I don't want to put shoes on her. I have heard there is an oil you can put on to protect their feet when riding, does anyone know what it is?

Depends on the ground you ride on, remember that a horse without shoes is better off on roads than a horse with shoes. Far less concussion on their legs. Find a good farrier who cares for your horse not about money and tell you if your workload is too much for your horses feet. A horses feet will grow quicker to meet the workload generally unless your horses feet are in bad shape. I have a cob who is barefoot and we ride out 6 times a week for a couple hours a day on roads and all tracks and we compete and her feet need to be trimmed! So ask your farriers advice.

You can put on a hoof strengthner but by rights if she has got good feet and you are not going to make her trot loads on the road she should be ok. You could always check with your farrier and see what they recommend.
