The Hoof Guided Method offers a unique method of barefoot trimming based on reading the hoof. A truly less is more approach, the Hoof Guided Method is based on the theory that a barefoot trim should mimic - or simulate - the action of the ground on the hoof, and that the true purpose of the trim is to stimulate the foot to grow healthy. You will learn what to trim and what to leave alone in order to allow nature to quickly transform the hoof.
