Hello, my name is Angelica Sundstrom. I am an apprentice barefoot trimmer with the Success With Horses Team. I believe that horses should be cared for according to what they need, according to what is physiologically appropriate for them. Their diet, lifestyle, and hoof care should honor their bodies and not work against them.
Why is proper trimming so important?
- A properly functioning foot absorbs 80% of the impact a horse encounters while in motion.... (read more)
-The hooves act as auxiliary pumps to help circulate blood flow throughout the body.
-Blood flow is extremely important as it brings nutrients to all the areas of the body and provides oxygen where needed. It also contributes to synovial fluid production in the joints and strong bones.
- When the walls, bars and heels of the horse get too long it will start to contract the foot, inhibit proper function, and cause peripheral loading (when the hoof wall grows to the point where it is bearing all the horses weight, think walking only on your toenails), all of which decrease circulation and can be very painful
I offer Barefoot Trimming services.
-Regular Trim $40
-Overgrown Trim $50 and up
- Travel is included up to 50 kms from my location. Beyond 50 kms I will have to charge extra unless there are three or more horses for me to trim.
**I do not trim draft horses at this time
