    I think it is very important that barefoot trimmers address embedded bar. So often they overlook this and don’t do much with bar. Embedded bar causes so much damage and needs attention. I am a big advocate of the ABC hoofcare method. Very scientific and mathematically based on physiology of the internal structures. It would help if owners would take and study a barefoot trimming class just to understand anatomy and hoof care and be able to make good choices with their providers or learn how to trim on their own!

    Every professional barefoot trimmer should be able to answer these questions with ease. Although, I wouldn’t ever allow any of my own horses to be shod, if an owner choses to go that route over barefoot to see what it does for their horse, I would not condemn them for it.
