Hoof Assessment and Barefoot Care
We offer hoof health consultations to assess the current condition of your horse's hooves, and then develop recovery plans for you and/or support your farrier and vet. We also provide barefoot trimming workshops, seminars & clinics, and hoof care locally in Ontario. We have a certified member of Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners , Canadian Equine Hoof Care Association , and Barefoot Horse Canada on-site with OnTotalWellness.
Trimming the hoof to influence optimal growth and balance simply encourages healthy function throughout the entire body. An experienced and educated hoof care practitioner knows how to read the hoof. The hoof is a window to the horse's overall health. We map the solar surface and the healing angles of the hoof to determine a trim approach; and we respect the horse's instinctive needs which support healthy growth. A balanced, barefoot trim is an important part of overall health.
We also utilize hoof boots, composite shoes, therapeutic pads, etc during rehabilitative work. Contact us today to book a hoof health consultation which includes coaching support.
Regardless of sport or recreation you do with your horse, healthy hooves increase their probability of having a long and resilient career. Horses without metal shoes can jump, barrel race, cut cows and do dressage at least as well as shod, if not better!
