I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals! Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Barefoot Horses a Success - Why Of Course, It's Natural!

(Image above from this cited article.)

I have been doing barefoot trimming for many years now. My horses are never lame, they never have abscesses, and have never had shoes. I have rehabilitated several rescue horse's feet too with great success. Many of the horses don't need anything at all but a few I've used hoof boots. It is all about the need at the time. And, I've got some excellent literature and DVDs in our home/farm library on the subject. (Although I'd never want to do it for anyone but my own horses...it's hard work! )
