Basic Barefoot Trimming for Horses in a Wet Climate
Mission Farrier School

~ A Common Sense Approach ~

This video offers novice and professional hoof trimmers and farriers a practical, common sense approach to trimming horses that live in the wet environment. From an equine perspective, a wet environment is any environment other than the high desert. For example whether your horse lives in the damp Pacific Northwest or an irrigated pasture in Kentucky, whether irrigated by man or by God, the result is the same, a soft, distorted foot. There are many factors that influence a successful barefoot management program. The environment in which the horse lives and works, performance expectations, hoof conformation, and soundness concerns are discussed. This video covers 3 horses that represent a cross section of feet. You will see examples of trimming young horses, neglected horses, and reasonably good-footed horses with minimal hoof distortions. Each demonstration offers good insight into foot function, recognizing hoof distortion, and “common sense” trimming guidelines.

He was the first instructor to successfully integrate Natural Balance farrier science within a formal farrier education program. This gives his students a unique opportunity over all others. Mark has given talks and clinics on all aspects of Hoof Health for over 15 years. No one is better suited at bridging the gap between the old and the new, and at maintaining a common sense approach in everything he does.
