Group Description

This group welcomes people who are committed to or would like to learn more about the principle of barefoot horses living in as natural a way as practicable. It aims to facilitate an informed and open exchange of knowledge and experience with the view of continuously improving the quality of equine barefoot trimming, holistic lameness rehabilitation and natural lifestyle.
The guiding principles are that healthy, properly functioning feet are essential to the optimal functioning of all the horse's biological systems and its mental health. The form of the hoof must facilitate its key functions of circulation, shock absorption, mechanical protection and traction.
Further detail on the principles and definition of what constitutes a healthy hoof are contained in the file titled New Member Information which all members are urged to read.
This site does not promote any one school of natural hoof care over another. An open, robust exchange of views is encouraged, but abusive or offensive posts are not acceptable and will be removed by the moderators.
Members may post information on the site that is relevant to hoof health and overall well-being of horses (with pertinent source materials properly acknowledged.) Any post, document or illustration posted on the site should not be reproduced without the originator's permission.

DISCLAIMER: Advice and information shared on this list doesn't replace expert advice from your own veterinarian or professional hoof care provider. Please be mindful that you are solely responsible for your actions and choices when dealing with your animals' well-being.
