Analysis and recommendations
Learn about your horse’s posture and gait, receive a hoof health assessment along with recommended course of action based on photos and videos which you take and send to us. The higher quality the imaging, the more accurate we can assess and provide appropriate recommendations!
Assessment includes signs of pathology and distortion in the hoof, hoof proportions and postural ideals, from the information you provide. A hoof score is indicated to help you determine appropriate level of work the horse might be expected to perform at without causing harm.
Guidance for improvement
Recommendations will be provided on horse and hoof care to help create and/or maintain ideal posture and hoof ideals, to improve the hoof score, and therefore boost the horse’s level of performance, soundness, well-being and resilience to trauma, injury, disease and infection. We may refer you to a vet or other professional

Hoof Scoring Info
During a visit we measure your horse’s current hoof health by scoring it on a scale from 0-10. Your horse’s current hoof score is an important piece of information, designed to help keep track of the hoof health progress objectively. Hoof scoring guides owners regarding what the horse is currently capable of comfortably with in terms of work or physical environment. Exceeding the horse’s currently capability can lead to injury, so it’s important to work the horse within its comfortable capabilities, and work holistically to increase the hoof score to the desired level.
Hoof scoring helps guide our clients on how they can PRO-actively care for their horse and provide on-going improvements to their horse’s well-being and resilience to injury, trauma, disease and infection.
