The Natural Hoof is a partnership between trimmers Julie Bailey (UKNHCP certified) and David Barrett. The business covers the North West of England, caring for approximately 200 horses.

 Julie Bailey: I became involved in natural hoof care in 2002. David and I were buying, backing and selling young horses. We were impressed with how sound and capable those horses were barefoot. I began researching trimming methods, being particularly impressed with the work of American trimmer and educator Pete Ramey, and decided to trim our horses myself.

I started being asked to trim for friends and clients I taught riding to, and was soon trimming part time.I decided that I wanted to trim full time. Feeling that people expect qualifications I completed the UKNHCP course in 2008. We now care for the hooves of around 200 horses and ponies.
