Barefoot Hoof Care:

It’s more than just a trim

IF YOU’RE NEW TO BAREFOOT HORSES, I hope that the information I provide here will introduce you to the various elements that are involved in developing and maintaining healthy hooves. Keeping a horse soundly barefoot requires more than just taking off the shoes, so the more educated you are about what encourages the development of a healthy hoof and what inhibits it, the better you will be able to help your horses grow and maintain healthy feet.

IF YOU’RE ALREADY KEEPING YOUR HORSES BAREFOOT and know a little or a lot about what it involves, then I hope these pages will serve to give you a good idea of what I’m about as a barefoot hoof care advocate and practitioner. Please feel free to ask me any questions you might have, based either on what you already know or on what information I put up on this website. Keeping horses barefoot and comfortable is a team effort.

WHEREVER YOU ARE IN YOUR BAREFOOT EXPERIENCE (already on board, new but interested, or curious but skeptical) have a look at my various pages for links to articles, websites, videos, and books that have informed my holistic approach to hoof care. Choosing the person who you’ll trust with your horse’s hooves is an important decision, and the better informed you are about what she or he does and WHY, the more confident you can be in making your choice.
