Winter is is around the corner and that means we might not be riding or driving our horses as often as we like to. But that doesn't mean our horses need less care. It's tempting to stretch the time between trims and resets to save money. But that can be false economy. Basic horse care
includes proper hoof care all year 'round. Neglecting your horse's hooves can be devastating. A number of problems can occur through neglect or through poor farrier work including navicular and contracted heels
. Horse, pony, donkey and mule hooves need to be trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks. If not, hoof overgrowth can lead to disfigurement and pain.
