After being introduced to barefoot management some 9 years ago, I started trimming my own horses and have continued ever since. All 8 of my equine friends are soundly barefoot. Their ages range from 2 to 24 years old, and the herd is a mix of a stallion, geldings and mares.

I am a CP (Certified Practitioner) with the Association for the Advancement of Natural Horse Care Practices (AANHCP). After trimming my own horses for so long and realising that my interest and passion for all things related to Natural Hoofcare was larger than just wanting to help my own horses, the AANHCP certification was the next natural step.

The AANHCP natural hoofcare Guidelines enable practitioners to mimic the truly healthy hooves and lifestyle of the wild horse, mule and burro, which provide the natural templates and foundation for genuine natural hoof care. The Guidelines prevent invasive trimming and methods that leave excessive growth which has negative effect on hoof integrity, thereby causing harm.

The AANHCP Guidelines do not yield a ''single trim'' or a one size fits all approach to barefoot trimming, rather they facilitate the unique individual growth patterns of each horse without causing harm or obstructing natural gaits.
