WHAT THEY SAY...
What are our clients are saying about us?
We have owned our Freiberger gelding for seven years. He was bought at the age of three. We always had him shod with “classical” shoes, but about one year ago he developed the so-called “navicular syndrome”. For six months we had him treated according to the “traditional” method (medicines and orthopedic shoes). We did not know much about barefoot managing of horses. We did not obtain any improvement, so we started to read and acquire information on barefoot management. Thanks to a friend in Italy we got into contact with Timothy, and four months ago decided to opt for trimming and natural management. The results have been extremely encouraging. Our horse is not lame any more, has developed good feet and seems happy and full of energy. He lives in a paddock by day and has always had daily walks, sometimes ridden, sometimes not. Given this good result, we are not going to shoe him any more.
I have seen many methods of barefoot trimming but this is the only one that I have seen work conclusively.
