All ‘barefoot’ trims are NOT equal! There are many new ‘barefoot trimmer’ pages and businesses being posted on the internet on a daily basis. Many have taken only a weekend or couple week course, with others who have been trimming for years (with holes in their education) With ‘barefoot’ becoming more mainstream and popular, It’s a buyers beware market out there!! You don’t always get what you pay for!
At EQ, you get more. We help YOU to become educated on the trim, but also the enhancements to lifestyle and diet that can make or break your success with your particular horse. There is NO cookie cutter trim recipe for all horses and in all seasons. We can help you LEARN how to keep sound for life barefoot horses that are healthier and happier. In Hoof Clinic, records are kept of the hoof through pictures and notes and at times, video so that we can keep your horse on track, from the Centre.

Trim Treatments OFF SITE: Professional Hoof shaping, for function, healing, circulation, growth and performance.
Trim treatments are for horses who are otherwise healthy individuals who need periodic professional balancing. Beneficial to those who trim for themselves and like getting a ‘check up’ on their trimming, or for those who simply do not want to or can not trim for themselves.
Trim Treatments are also for performance horses or competitive horses who have a need for great attention to detail when having the hoof shaped optimally for growth and development, as well as function for their sport.
No foot … No horse is an old adage and so true to this day. Your horse deserves functional feet. Do you know some warning signs that your horses feet are ‘out of whack’ and under par in function?
