Making the Transition to Barefoot

From pasture to creek, mud to gravel road, the best way to get feet that can handle any terrain is to expose hooves to every terrain.

Horses did not become lame overnight.  They also won’t heal overnight!

There may be a transitional time of healing for a horse from being shod or even from conventional barefoot trim to a natural barefoot trim method.  The time varies greatly depending on whether the horse had lameness issues before or how long and correctly the horse was shod or trimmed. Other factors which can speed healing are dependant on the owner: consistent trimming, healthy diet, environment, exercise, exercise, exercise!!!

No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.  ~ Winston Churchill
