Foot and hoof care - the barefoot option

The term 'barefoot' is closely associated with more than just the care of your horse's feet. It is an integral part of a new movement that not only looks at the condition of the horse's feet, but also the way in which horses are managed, including diet, environment and exercise.

Keeping your horse barefoot involves not only essential hoof care, but also careful management of the horse's diet, environment and exercise routine
