A healthy horse... It's not about being shod or Barefoot there's much more to health. Thrush and poor hoof care (hoof rot) is the most common affliction with lame horses and definitely most prevalent in the slaughter house. Treat thrush with proper trimming ( and not every trimmer out there is skilled enough to take on serious contraction) but even so, that's where the trimmers job starts and ends. Then it's up to the owner to continue to treat and eradicate thrush with proper nutrients... Good footing and lots of movement...both natural movement and proper training of the muscles movement if you want your horses for the long run. Treat thrush topically with Magik spray and detail cleaning and you can and will get thrush under control for the health of your horse. ... See MoreSee Less

The first ever completely bitless horse event in Norway! 45 teams had fun with their horses in Agility, Show Jumping, Trick and Dancing. Over 100 people visited the event, and Bitless & Badass was a massive success. The athmosphere was magical, so relaxed and happy, and I have never in my life had so many goosebump-moments during a horse event before. More photos will be added shortly. A huge thanks to LEXA Norge, Al-Andalus Horse Jewelry & Ardor Hesteutstyr for sponsoring us with prizes.
