In 2005, we asked a very basic question about our horses: “Why did they need shoes?” In the end, we decided the answer was “They don’t.” Since then, none of our horses have had shoes. We have worked with a number of different farriers and trimmers since then to learn the science of trimming horse hooves. We believe has been continuing education and all things related to the horse and highly encourage clients and other owners to do the same.
Rob is not currently taking clients for trimming, but does continue to sell boots.
Rob is a hoof boot dealer for both Easy Care and Renegades! If you would like to purchase boots, Email or call/text (860-884-0110) to schedule an appointment. You do not have to be a trimming client to purchase boots. Check out all of our Equine Products.
Here is a very good article that summarizes what we believe about barefoot horses: http://www.thehorseshoof.com/pdf_articles/BarefootParadigm.pdf.
