NATURAL HOOF CARE
“What is natural hoof care”? In short, NHC is the mimicking of the natural wear patterns documented in wild horses of the US Great Basin. We then take these natural patterns and apply them to the individual horse and hoof in the care of a qualified NHC practitioner. All horses can go barefoot and thrive with natural hoof care allowing the horse to be healthier and perform better. Horseshoes only harm the hoof, weaken it, and cause harm. They cover up issues in the hoof that can be rectified and healed with time and proper natural hoof care. We can help your horse with NHC.
