About The Natural Trim: Principles and Practice


The Natural Trim: Principles and Practice (2012, 2019) positions the natural trim within the broader context of the 4 Pillars of NHC (natural horse care): natural diet, Paddock Paradise, natural gaits, and the natural trim. The Theory of H° emerges for the first time as a well-developed concept and constituent of the 4 Pillars. The Theory of H°, derived from data collected from wild, free-roaming horses of the U.S. Great Basin, is a concept of natural hoof growth patterns and biomechanical balance governed by adaptive forces unique to the equine species. This book paved the way for the Basic and Advanced Guidelines of the natural trim.
