MCCords Natural hoof Trimming is based on the mustang hoof model. I have been highly recommended by Dr. Dustin Dorris DVM who was also a very successful farrier before Vet School at Cornerstone Animal Hospital in Stephenville, Tx and by Dr. Joe Cannon DVM of Greens Creek Veterinary clinic in Stephenville, Tx. I am a former Member of the American Farriers Association and I have been recommended by one of the best in the business Ida Hammer who is a great hoof care provider and clinician and also AFA Certified Journyman Farrier/Clinician and Examiner Pat Burton. I also have attended many clinics and been to Liberated Horsemanship's barefoot hoof care school. Natural hoof care is the most beneficial way to keep your horses hooves in fantastic condition. There are many reasons to choose this trim one being that barefoot horses live longer and with regular natural trims it prevents and can corrects most lameness issues as well as providing proper hoof mechanics. No hoof no Horse is a very true statement and being a horse owner myself I know I want what is best for my horses and their hooves. Our horses hooves are one of the most vital parts of this great animal. The Houston Police went to an all barefoot police mount a couple years ago and there's a reason for it. The Houston Police Department has the largest riding patrol mount in the USA. The horses are healthier, have stronger hooves, better circulation, better breakover, better traction, less concussion, and etc.! Also all the horses that came to the Houston Police Department were rescues comming with horse shoes on and some with hooves that weren't in such great condition. They are all sound now and working the streets barefoot or with hoof boots!
I have talked alot about the trim so far but this really isn't just about a cookie cutter trim or a miracle trim. The whole horse has got to be addressed from diet to exercise and proper veterianry care. If you just treat the hooves and not the whole horse you won't see full benefits.
Tradition is starting to change because people are seeing the great results and facts that barefoot is better for the horse as well as treating the whole horse. I am committed to meeting the hoof care needs of your horse. I am very passionate about what I do and enjoy helping horses alot. I am constantly learning as well by attending great clinics such as the ones Ida Hammer and Liberated Horsemanship puts on as well as reading books, watching videos, what I learn from everyday trimming and talking to other great hoof care professionals. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I hope this will encourage you to choose McCords Natual Hoof Trimming!
