Group Description

This group is set up to explore horse health, & particularly aspects of equine health that result in healthy, robust bare feet. This group promotes a very conservative barefoot trim such as that endorsed by the American Hoof Association. We also discuss saddles & saddle fit, dentistry, bodywork & chiropractic, training, places to horse camp and ride, pasture management, nutrition... almost anything equine is okay.

It is a closed group, but people asking for membership & letting me know what they are interested in will be accepted. NO advertising or promotion without my permission! Please state why you wish to join & how you learned about us.We have almost no spam on this group because I assess memberships requests!

I am a full-time professional trimmer who also publishes the www.healthyhoof.com website, plus I'm active in both the American Hoof Association and the Pacific Hoof Care Practitioners groups. I'm really busy & offer this group, on the side, for the benefit of our horses.

Metal shod horse owners & shoeing farriers are welcome here as long as they understand that the group is pro-barefoot / boots / synthetic glue nail shoes & shells. Metal shoe advocates won't be harassed or attacked, and can question what we do and why as long as we all keep it professional... if it gets out of hand I cut it off. Many of us have used or are open to using synthetic shoes therapeutically. We all understand that a hoof needs to be trimmed well before anything else happens, & discussing trims - shod afterward or not - is one of our main interests.

I'm fine with different opinions, but have a low tolerance for people who can't state their opinion and move on. Differences are okay, leave it at that! We all have different perspectives, that's good. Mine is best for me, yours is best for you...

If you feel your way is the only "best way" or "the only way"? Please find a group of people who feel the same way you do. Play nice and you are welcome here!
