    I trim our mares every 4 weeks with a rasp (no nippers). It keeps them looking much better than having a trimmer out every 6-8 weeks. In the winter, they grow much more slowly and sometimes only require a little clean up and roll over. Also, it depends on how much riding we do and on what terrain...a lot of riding over rougher terrain keeps them almost trimmed naturally, and I just clean up any uneven wear.

    Both go every 8 weeks and in the winter possibly 10 weeks. Works out great for them and their feet are fantastic!!

    Depending on how dast your horses hooves grow. If they grow faster, id say 6 weeks. If they are a little slower, close to 8 weeks.
