These are photos of my trimming work. For the purpose of photo comparison, the horse's left hoof has been trimmed and the horse's right front has not. A good trim is the foundation of the horse and is essential for soundness and hoof health! These photos help show how hoof distortion can often be fixed almost completely in just one trim. In very severe cases, it may take a couple of trim cycles to restore health and function to the foot.
The goal of any trimmer or farrier is to restore balance, improve the horse's stance and set the animal up for soundness.
