Hoof care is something which horses need so that their hooves are worn down naturally and to protect them for other disorders. To maintain a natural shape and degree of wear, domesticated horses require trimming, exercise, and other measures.
Horseshoes are not used, but natural hoof care is also done on horses that wear them because it is a good way to connect with your horse and improve its health. In theory, trimming the hooves of a horse sounds simple, but it takes a lot of practice and short trimming sessions before you get used to it.
In order to become comfortable with the process, you should start with short sessions. Do it carefully and soon you’ll discover that it is not a difficult process at all. The guys from this video have their own method and technique to trim the horse hooves. It looks unusual, but it turns out to be very functional.
They are doing a lot of efforts to trim the horse’s hooves and that might look strange to some of you. However, it all depends on personal judgment and maybe in time, they’ll be able to do it otherwise. Take care of horses and go riding!
