  Barefoot Trimmer  --- Roger Budden

Now in the Northwest, Roger Budden has a wealth of education and experience across the country helping horses and owners find the healthy foot they've all been looking for.

The High Performance barefoot horse approach is widespread throughout the world.  Barefooters are successful in reining, rodeo, polo, endurance, dressage, and many other disciplines.

To put it very simply - barefoot trimming is about simulating and stimulating.  First we are simulating the wear horses' feet would get if they were free to get all the exercise they needed to keep their feet self-trimmed.  Secondly we are trimming the foot to stimulate it to grow healthy and in the proper form for each individual foot. 

What goes on inside the hoof during motion is important to the circulation of blood in the horse.  It has been proven that shoes reduce that circulation.  A natural barefoot horse has warm legs (the same temperature as the rest of the body).  A shod horse will have cold legs.  A clear sign of impaired circulation.
Barefoot horses GAIN:

-- Quality of Movement, because a light, naturally shaped hoof with early breakover, allows the entire leg to move more freely and the foot to land heel-first;

-- Surefootedness, because barefoot hooves can feel the ground and have better traction;

-- Stamina, because the flexing hooves help provide blood circulation to the entire body system.

We are seeing excellent results using barefoot to rehabilitate foundered horses to full soundness and rideability (see Founder page). The wild-horse barefoot trim re-balances the navicular foot to allow healing of inflamed tissues

"I love running barefoot!  I feel that Bald Ridge feels the ground better and I think she is smoother. Roger helped me transition into barefoot trimming easily.  He has given me confidence with his education and experience in his field.  He is also really patient with colts, and I shoud know, I always have a new colt to introduce him too...."
