Ok so if you have a horse that has conformation that needs support or a horse who has bad angles how would you go about correcting it as a barefoot trimmer?
The hoof is supposed to grow down based on the angles of these bones, in particular, the coffin bone. A good corrective trimmer will remove the forces that deform the hoof capsule so the hoof can grow down in its proper shape. The problems in our hooves are due to trimmers and farriers not understanding hoof anatomy and how hooves grow and are deformed. Because of this, they attempt to fix problems by applying shims and cutting things off here and there instead of attempting to grow a hoof capsule all the way down from the coronary band that fits tightly over the inner foot.
