Just like many of you, I once thought that anything to do with my horses Hoof Care was my farriers job.
How could I possibly know what I was doing with my horses hooves was the right thing?
Maybe it would make them lame?
I decided I needed to know more DO MORE and took action.
I knew there were horses out there doing thousands of kilometres on bare hooves in endurance and I just
wanted to know HOW to maintain soundness in hooves I WANTED IN.
I wanted beautiful sound hooves on my horses that could take me anywhere.
What made the difference between an unsound "ouchy" horse and a true rock crunching horse?
I had to know more - so off I went with my questions and undertook professional training in Equine Myofunctional Therapy (Cert EMT) and Equine Podiotherapy (Dip EPT). I trimmed my horses from 2001 - started trimming Professionally from 2004 and rode them many thousands of kilometres barefoot and booted. All the while focusing on what I could do to improve the form and function of any hoof under my care.
It came down to MAINTENANCE.
MAINTENANCE - by taking ownership of my horses hooves, diet and environment.
MAINTENANCE - trying to always be on top of any small hoof infection before it creates lameness.
