Professional Hoofcare with The Horse in Mind


Welcome to the home of Professional Hoofcare with the Horse in Mind and to the exciting and inspiring world of Applied Equine Podiatry. 


"The essence of Applied Equine Podiatry is the conscientious study of the equine foot, always striving to expose it to proper environmental stimuli, making every effort to promote proper structure and function as we progress towards achieving high performance. It is accepting the fact that the horse has the innate ability to heal itself and that man's interference has caused imbalance and broken the golden rule  Do No Harm". 

                                                                     The Chosen Road, KC La Pierre, RJF,MEP.

Applied Equine Podiatry is based on the formula Structure + Function = Performance. By completing a spectrum of usability form for each of the structures of the hoof, we are able to see the progress our horses are making, which structures are healthy or which structures may be in need of conditioning via correct environmental stimuli. Correct physiological function of the hoof can only be achieved through the removal of shoes and by allowing the horse to make use of his innate ability to heal himself. Only when the correct health of the structures have been resumed can we achieve correct function and our goal - high performance.


Covering Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.
