Steven Leigh - Experienced Barefoot Trimmer. When I started the business I had a clear understanding of what I wanted to do and achieve: "Work as a team with the horse at the centre to enable the horse to live and work comfortably and perform to the best of its ability without the need for shoes."

A well balanced trim is obviously a key element to achieving this but its about so much more than just trimming hooves - I see it as looking at the horse as a whole, its conformation, way of going, diet, environment and exercise, then using and adapting these elements so that the horse produces its own ideal hoof structure not simply forcing one hoof shape upon it. Very often recognising what not to trim is key to a happy, hard working barefoot horse.

It's important to look at what the horse is producing and make sure you understand why a hoof is growing in a specific way. It may sound complicated and difficult but its really not - it's simply common sense.
