What shoes do you wear if you have no horse riding boots for riding a horse?

The next best thing to horse riding specific boots are smooth soled work boots with a low heel. You could also wear 'fashion' style boots so long as they have a 1.5 to 2 inch heel on them. If you can only wear tennis or athletic shoes ask if the person has toe cages or Tapaderos to put on the stirrup irons to keep your foot from going through the iron.

What kind of horse tack would prevent a horse form overreaching and thus prevent injury?

I think 'tack' is the wrong word. What you need are boots. They are sometimes called overreach boots or bell boots and are a must for a horse that 'tracks up' to the point that he interferes with himself. The result can be injury to the backs of the front cannon bones, fetlocks or heels which of course you want to avoid at all costs. You can buy these from your local tack or feed store or can order them online from horse supply catalogs.

The wide padded part should be on the inside of the horse's ankle, and the straps should be going toward the back

Where types of boots should one wear when riding a horse?

There are three main considerations to be made when choosing riding boots. What is comfortable for the rider, what is comfortable for the horse (and will not harm it) and what kind of riding are you undertaking. In essence riding boots should be of soft material with no protrusions, long boots are also an advantage. This is so that the horse does not feel any discomfort from the horse and the rider can easily make his wishes known to the horse through leg movements.

If your horse is pulling its shoes what item should you use to prevent it from happening?

you should put bell boots on the horse because when horses over reach with their back legs they pull their shoes... bell boots are especially designed to have a long flap in the back to prevent their hoofs from latching on to the shoe! :)

How would you clean and store horse boots?
