Discovering Your Horse's Natural Hooves - How to Trim the Barefoot Horse

This year long project was filmed in high definition and edited by Epona Productions of North Bend, Washington.  

Learn how to perform the barefoot natural trim. We review the tools you will need with recommendations on which tools to purchase.  Added demonstrate of trimming on a donkey hoof and discussion of hoof issues such as abscesses.

The DVD is divided into chapters so you can easily access the information you're seeking. 

We don't go into correcting severe hoof ailments, so as a companion to the DVD, we are working on a companian ebook.
Topics such as founder, whiteline infection, abscesses and thrush will be explained in the ebook.

We hope this will be a wonderful stepping stone on your journey into natural hoof care and one of many tools you choose on your way to becoming your horse's ally for their healthiest hooves.

Becoming proficient at trimming your own horses hooves is one of the most liberating and gratifying skills a horse owner can acquire.  

We promise it will change your life, and your horses' lives, in ways you never imagined.

We welcome feedback! 

Remember!  Proceeds from the DVD and our tools benefit the 25 equines currently with us at our hoof rehab center.  And we thank you for your generous support.

A few testimonials from those who have purchased and watched the DVD:

Thank you for sharing your knowledge, I have Pete Ramey's and Jaime Jackson's, and your DVD is just easier to understand and follow.  For the average person with horses with normal feet, this is the BEST video hands down.  I think that many problems like white line, cracks, chips, navicular and other problems will be solved if people just follow your dvd and keep up with the trims and follow your advice on turn-out and nutrition.

In desperation I ordered this video - not at all expecting a high-quality video with very well articulated explanations accompanied by great video. I'm a reporter/producer who does national PBS stories and I am hugely impressed with the quality of this video. I've learned so much already and I'm not even done watching.  Thank you, Pat.

Great job!  I won't say I was surprised because I did see the trailer on YouTube but the production quality was just great.  The sound and picture quality was wonderful.  I loved the music.  It fit perfectly and was not distracting at all.  Someone was great on the camera.  The views of your trimming were perfectly clear and made understanding easy.  You have a great teaching style and voice.  I wish you were closer.  I would love to learn from you directly.  Your organization and presentation was so good I'm not sure it left me with questions other than the ones I don't know enough to ask yet.

I wanted to write and say thank you so much for making such a wonderful hoof trimming video.  This is one of the most beneficial horse videos I have ever watched and I have watched a lot of them.  You made the process of trimming so easy to understand it left me super excited about what I had learned.  I have watched several trimming videos and several of them were using words I didn't understand or offered incorrect knowledge therefor I didn't learn much.  Keep up the good work.  I will keep an eye out for any future videos you might put out and share your info with friends.  Thanks again!

The DVD arrived yesterday and I watched it immediately. Twice!  The DVD is terrific! Very informative, great quality, and just the 
motivation needed!  It is exactly what I needed.  I've visited all the websites, I've read many of the books (including Pete Ramey's), but what I needed was a  visual presentation that would give me the confidence needed to try that  first trim. You're DVD was perfect!  
Eric, CA

We are extremely impressed and excited about practicing and learning to trim our horses.  It isn't nearly as intimidating as we learn more about the goals.  Keep up the great work and please realize that you are a prayer answered for so many horse owners.   
Dan, WA

What a very good DVD you made! It was easy to understand and done in laymans language. I've watched the trimming twice. It was nice to be able to see exactly what you were doing.  Other DVD's are not as professional as this one and it's difficult to see what exactly what he's doing! Debbie Gwinn, WA

Great DVD!  Very professional.  My wife is a teacher and she was very impressed with your teaching style.  
Cliff Kinnaman, WA

Your DVD is awesome! It is wonderful. I love how it repeats so I don't have to replay what I want to hear again. It is totally totally totally too cool.
