Welcome to my site! Thanks for your interest in horses and their care. I am here to tell you all trims are not equal. There is usually a transistion period, of a few days to a few weeks with minimal soreness, which when the horses come out of it are gravel crunchers, For those of you that are patient will see horses develope confidence and tuffness quickly that will carry over into their performance world. The enhanced cardiovascular will add athleticism to their performance, and may very well add 5 years to their life. To maintain this is done by trimming before you see damage and properly expoliating sole out around the frog allowing coffin bone movement for maximum soundness also not allowing the horse to get too fat. The perfect weight is that you can’t see ribs, but you can feel them
