We have created a horse track environment allowing our barefoot horses to live out together as a herd 365 days per year. Constant access to hay and limited grass grazing helps to maintain the condition of their barefoot hooves and reduce risk of laminitis, while continuous freedom of movement and contact with other horses mimics the natural horse environment and reduces stress and behavioural problems for the horse.
