  • They believe horses need shoes to preform correctly

      Many people in the horse world don’t understand Bare foot trimming. They believe horses need shoes to preform correctly. THIS IS UNTRUE! Horses legs are a lot like sponges. Every time one of them makes contact with the ground it sends blood up the leg. Which is vital for a perfectly sound horse. Shoes block some of that blood flow. Which can cause some problems down the road.

      I mean think about it.

      If horses needed shoes they would be born with them. People believe that horses need shoes to prevent cracking and wearing. The hoof will do that by it’s self. Bare Foot Trimmers work to restore the horses hoof to it’s natural state. Only trimming whats needed. Eventually if taken care of properly the horses hooves will be hard enough to canter on gravel with out the horse getting sore.

      Horse Shoes also increase ...

      • the chance of thrush in a horses hooves. Most people can’t tell because its in the hard to reach places under the shoe.

        I’ve also been told natural gaited horses will not gait bare foot. Because if their foot lands on a rock they will remember that and repeat it. This is completely false. My Rocky mountain horse is a gaiting fool. People also show bare footed just to show the judges

        how natural their gait is. After all why should a horse rely on a shoe when they are supposed to be naturally gaited?

        Generally Bare foot trimming runs slightly less then shoes. I have also seen personally horses with horrible feet get completely better due to bare foot trimming. But understand some horses can not go bare foot. I don’t know why but it just doesn’t work for them. My sister has one of those horses.
