  • 2. Every horse requires an individual approach to the care of its hooves.
  • 3. NOT EVERY HORSE IS COMFORTABLE BARE FOOTED, SOME NEED SHOES TO BE COMFORTABLE.
  • 4. In the situation where a horse shows signs of any physical discomfort, assess its feet thoroughly first.

  • 6. The most common lamenesses in horses can be solved with appropriate hoof care.
  • 7. Too many horses have been unnecessarily euthanased, slaughtered, retired or sold cheaply due to the lack of appropriate hoof care.
  • 8. Be aware, the inappropriate choice of hoof care will have a negative impact on the horses’ wellbeing, wether it be shoeing or other forms of alternative hoof care.
