There are many reasons why horse owners and professionals choose a barefoot approach instead of steel shoes. Some horses have never been shod while others have been shod for many years.
Keeping a horse barefoot is a popular choice among horse owners in the UK. Horses in all equine disciplines - endurance, hacking out, dressage, show jumping, hunting, cross country, racing, eventing - are excelling. The decision to keep a barefoot horse can be made from when a foal is born through to taking a horse barefoot at 20 +
Our case studies present a small selection of stories to demonstrate it is a personal experience for every horse and their owner. We have worked with hundreds of barefoot horses and every one has been an individual.
