    Feral Vs Domestic Hooves with Bonny Mealand by Equithrive

    We have heard the arguments about how we can't compare domestic horse hooves to feral hooves because they lives such different lives and have different expectations.

    Ethical Considerations in Working on Lameness Cases with Kendra Skorstad, by Equithrive

    Ethical Considerations in Working on Lameness Cases with Kendra Skorstad, by Equithrive

    One difficult issue hoofcare providers struggle with is how can we advocate best for the horses in our care, while also managing expectations for their owners and riders? Kendra Skorstad and I talk about the ethical considerations and implications involved with working on lameness cases and hoof rehab clients. This is a candid, off-the-cuff conversation that asks more questions than gives answers, but gives a sneak peak into the hoofcare provider's daily thought process.

Everything for the hoof obsessed!!

My mare was diagnosed with navicular syndrome about 4 years ago, I immediately started researching on keeping her comfortable, barefoot and yes rideable! This podcast was EXACTLY what I was looking for!! I’ve listened to almost every episode!! Thanks to the advice here Lady , now 23, is walking tall, hitting the trails , and wearing her boots with pride! Major diet and supplement changes that I learned here made it all possible!
THANK YOU!!!!
