Group Description

This list is a positive support group for horse owners interested in high peformance barefooted horses, based on the wild horse model. *****This group is not very active these days, so I would recommend that you also sign up to the barefoothorsecare group which is very active and the members are a wonderfully helpful group of people.*****

We believe that horse-shoeing is detrimental in the long run. We also believe that barefootedness can be a superior high-performance option after correctly conditioning and managing the transition to barefootedness, which may involve the temporary use of removable hoof boots. In cases where the horse is not conditioned to the type of terrain he will be ridden on, or the owner does not have the time to put enough miles on the horse every day, removable hoof boots may be needed longer for riding on rough terrain. This is an option that we believe is better than shoeing because boots can be used only when needed, they allow more hoof mechanism, and the horse can enjoy all the benefits of being barefooted the rest of the time.
