I have been teaching owners to trim their own horses and trimming for others for around 8 years.
 
In the early days I was frustrated by the lack of advice and assistance out there and the fact that one of my horses was lamed by a barefoot trimmer! Following lots of very helpful advice from various trimmers in the USA, including Marjorie Smith (owww.barefoothorse.com) and also the various resources produced by Jaime jackson and Pete Ramey, I commenced trimming my horses myself and have never looked back. I am always learning from the hooves of the horses I trim and the more feedback I get from my clients the more I can refine my trim and obtain the result of the optimum performance for the particular horse.
 
I have studied various trim methods advocated by a variety of barefoot trimmers including....Strasser, KC La Pierre, Jaime Jackson, Pete Ramey and others. I have also trained with various hoof care professionals from the US and UK, including farriers. I know from dissections of hooves and legs of humanely destroyed horses of the damage that metal shoes do, but how lamenesses can be healed by a natural trim and careful management. This is why I decided to purchase a badly laminitic horse, abscessing on two feet, to find out for myself exactly what a natural trim and natural boarding could do. The following year this same horse took part in her first ever ride with Sport Endurance and I also cantered round training rides - barefoot - on a 'flat-footed' horse that had been declared by the vet to never be sound barefoot.
 
Barefoot or booted is the way to go. I am also a believer in the bitless approach and gentle horsemanship from the ground. Contact me for hooves and the bitless training approach including Clicker Training and horsemanship for non-horse people. My Hoofcare Practice covers much of the West Midlands including Worcestershire, Warwickshire and the Birmingham conurbation in approximately a 40 mile radius of the M42/M5 junction. Please enquire if you require my assistance outside this radius.

http://www.goinghome.org.uk  Gary and his wife Lorraine  run a very small Not For Profit organisation rehabilitating and rehoming horses based here in Mid Wales.   Going Home is a small, "not for profit" yard in Mid Wales where we have a maximum of 7 horses "in rehab". They range from small ponies to huge heavy horses and the thing that they all have in common is that they would not have had a future without Going Home. Some were unhandled, some had behavioural issues, we have a head-shaker, a gorgeous horse with a rare degenerative disease that attacks his connective tissue, and a nervous boy who has had 9 homes in 7 years and who bolts. Our goals are to use the best of natural and traditional horsemanship to give these horses a job to do and then we look for the perfect long term loan home for them. We keep our horses out as much as possible, they're all barefoot and most of them bitless too with bitted horses gradually being transitioned to bitless.
