Dawn and Roses

Dawn’s Bio: I have fifty-plus years of horse experience, and have trimmed my own four generations of homebred horses since 1990. I learned how to shoe in 1996 to maintain and heal my horse, Max, who needed therapeutic shoes for an old injury. Since then, I’ve chased down a farrier education, published articles in farrier magazines, and pursued my creative horse carriage, endurance and trail riding passions . . . see my Soul Horse Ride blog for more on my horse philosophy :)) — DawnHoof

Wild-Hoof Barefoot Trims


Emphasis on Function — Comfort and Soundness

It’s true: Not all farriers, not all trims are alike. My “Hawaiian HoofCare” Natural Barefoot Hoof Trims are time-tested, wear well, and serve the whole horse. Owners report: Increased growth and circulation; greater length of stride; enhanced movement and soundness; less chipping and cracking.

“Allow your horse to move with Aloha!”  DawnHoof

Thinking “Outside the Box”

Sheared heels, deficient lateral wall

Happy Dawn, Happy Hoof
