I am not about controversy, however, not everyone will agree with my philosophies and opinions here.
Just remember, advice and opinions are only valueable if you feel they apply to you. If you
believe the information you find here doesn't apply to you or your horse then I'm sure there's something
out there that will work for you, but remember not necessarily for the horse.
I hope you find this place resourceful and sincerely hope you get reassurance about issues concerning barefoot care
and whole natural care.
I am a strong advocate for the AANHCP method
of trimming. Please check out the AANHCP site
for tons of information about the Wild Horse and how they are a role model for your domestic horse. You will learn they
are healthier and more grounded and confident because they are allowed to live and socialize as they are meant to. Although
short of setting your horse free, using the wild horse model for care is not to say that your domestic horse will be in that
environment. It is what it is, a model to mirror as best as possible the ways of the wild horse so that your domestic
horse receive some of the benefits that wild horses receive, which include socialization, living environment, mobility, natural
diet, natural hoof care and natural training. My personal favorites are Paddock Paradise for natural mobility, socialization and
living environment, AANHCP for natural hoof care method and feed, Parelli Natural Horsemanship Training, ADM feed for
low NSC, although Triple Crown is not available in my area, I understand it is also a great source of low NSC.
