Healthy Hooves “Barefoot Horses on a Track System”  July 21st. This will be the only workshop of its kind for this year so if you would like to come along reserve your place as soon as possible as this always books up very quickly and numbers are limited.

If you would like to learn more about keeping barefoot horses healthy, find out about suitable nutrition and the benefits of varying surfaces on a paddock paradise type track system then this is the day for you. Plenty of opportunity to share ideas and spend time with like minded people throughout the day

Garry Hinton is the facilitator on the day and is a qualified barefoot trimmer working with Hoofing Marvellous.

Garry trained with Liberated Horsemanship and has offered to spend the day here at Horse Haven UK to share his knowledge with us.

The day will start at 10.30am . Discussions about the benefits to your horse of being barefoot and how to transition from shod to barefoot.

Nutrition and discussion of various natural feed options and much much more.

A vegetarian lunch will be provided along with refreshments throughout the day.

Many interesting topics will be covered including the benefit of herbs in the horses diet and their ability to pick what is good for them.

Lots of information on the fascinating subject of zoopharmacognosy and self selection. Garry will demonstrate this with one of the horses that live here.

We have quite an extensive track system and all will be welcome to a tour around the tracks.

Mike will explain how we created it and why, also the effects the varying type of terrain has had on our horses hooves.

Throughout the day there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers
