Importance of antomic trim
It is very important to be aware, that you should trim your horse based on anatomy and frequently enough. In Finland that means every week during summer, and maximum every 2 to 3 weeks during winter. The more you let the hoof wall grow, the less the boot fits. It is also very important to trim frequently enough for your horse well being. As you can see, it is also important to know how to trim yourself, at least a maintenance trim and learn how to take holistic care of your equine friend.
If you are in the beginning of barefoot life with your horse, be sure to have someone who knows how to trim barefoot horses by anatomy and are aware of holistic care for horses. Field trim that is made with common practitioners is not based on anatomy.
When you keep the hooves in shape all the time, your horse will get the most out of the Flex Hoof Boots. It is always nice for a horse to move with perfectly fitting boots, like you feel most comfortable to move with perfectly fitting shoes.
