Barefoot Trimming

Natural hoof care is the practice of keeping horses so that their hooves are worn down naturally and do not suffer overgrowth, splitting and other disorders.

Horseshoes are not used, but domesticated horses still require trimming, exercise, good diet and other measures to maintain a natural shape, degree of wear and stimulate better hoof growth.

It is recommended that horses get trimmed every 4-6 weeks. Some horses will need shorter cycles and some can go longer.
