The Natural Trim: Principles and Practice
The Natural Trim: Principles & Practice is the first release by the world renowned wild horse and hoof care expert, Jaime Jackson, since the 2007 publication of his revolutionary book, "Paddock Paradise: A Guide to Natural Horse Boarding" and 20 years since his first book was published, The Natural Horse: Lessons from the Wild (1992/Northland Publishing/Star Ridge). The Natural Trim is for any interested in horses - as an owner or as a professional. Because the health of the horse shows up in its hooves, the condition of the hoof is to the horse what the canary is to the coalminer. The book looks at the species, equus ferus caballus, and shows the reader why the sound, healthy and fit, wild & free-roaming Great Basin Mustang should serve as the universal model of health for all domestic horses. Part I focuses on all aspects of healthy horsekeeping and Part II provides step by step guidelines to conducting this humane, barefoot trim method based on the U.S. Great Basin Mustangs.
