The Natural Trim is distinctly different from a barefoot trim. The hoof is not forced into an “ideal” shape, but rather allowed to transform through the Natural Trim method. This method does not compromise the natural thickness of the hoof armour. Our job is to create sound healthy horses and to facilitate natural growth patterns in hooves. The Natural Trim is defined as the humane mimicking of natural wear patterns. When these natural wear patterns are applied to the hoof at roughly 4 – 6 weeks, The Natural Trim triggers a cascade of integrated biodynamic forces that produce and reinforce naturally shaped hooves. Our four guiding Principles of the Natural Trim: 1. Leave that which should be there 2. Remove only that which is naturally worn away in the wild. 3. Allow to grow that which should be there but is not due to human meddling 4. Ignore all pathology For sound healthy horses the natural trim needs to be accompanied by the other three pillars. ***YOU CAN BOOK THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL SERVICES DURING THIS BOOKING*** 1.
