"Natural Balance Hoof Trimming" Gene Ovnicek 2 Disc DVD Set

It is apparent with the research done by Gene Ovnicek and other well-known clinicians that the feral horse offers a direction for domestic horse hoof care. Nutrition, environment, life-style, and climate combined are the components that are responsible for shaping what appears to be the optimal model for maintaining the health of the equine foot.

In this video, Gene Ovnicek presents information on trimming methods to help you maintain a healthy foot in domestic horses. Gene discusses basic hoof anatomy and how it relates to the biomechanical needs of the hoof. He discusses the importance of evaluating the environment and how it plays a role in trimming maintenance as well as in decision making when determining if individual horses can be successfully left barefoot. Gene demonstrates natural balance hoof trimming techniques, from how to evaluate the pre-trimmed hoof to actual trimming instructions, which will help balance the structures in the hoof for optimal function.
