Pro-Active Hoof Trimming Webinar: Trimming Considerations for Barefoot Horses in Rehab with Q&A

VIP Membership content

Join myself, Beccy Smith, founder and CEO of Holistic Equine and fellow Integrative Equine Podiatrist Fiona Varian from Fluid Movements while she reviews, step by the step, the trim considerations applied to a barefoot horse in rehab with less than healthy or ideal hoof morphology (form and function).

In this webinar, Fiona reviews a video of her trimming a barefoot horse in rehab and outlines the things to be considered during this rehabilitation trim. This individualised and horse-centred approach helps horses develop optimum hoof morphology (form and function) and therefore optimum potential for comfort, health, soundness and lasting resilience.

Essentially the aim and intention is to help the horse develop and maintain appropriate vertical depth and ideal position and orientation of the pedal bone and pastern bones (known as appropriate phalangeal alignment or a straight hoof pastern axis). This provides optimum opportunity for neutral and efficient resting posture and biomechanics and supports optimum physical development for a balanced, healthy and happy horse, as demonstrated in modern podiatry and farriery science.

In the video reviewed in the webinar, you will see the marked up hoof using HoofmApp app as well as what might be considered the ideal hoof morphology for this hoof on this horse. if you would like to learn how to identify, use and appreciate the ideal hoof for your horse like a PRO, visit our academy for new of our latest self study online course PRO Hoof Mapping:
