What is it?

This package consists of two books, a DVD, a handy pocket book, and a discount coupon for the course "Natural Hairdressing".
The book "Horse Naturally"
Natural hoof maintenance starts with optimizing the living conditions of the horse. The book "Horse Naturally", which is also available separately, discusses, among other things, adapting housing and nutrition so that the hooves can develop better. It covers all the reasons why horses are put on horseshoes and how you can achieve those same goals without horseshoes. It helps you decide whether or not you want to switch, to which method, and whether you should do the trimming yourself.
This list is by no means exhaustive; for a more detailed description you can visit the page of the Book "Horse Naturally" .
The book "Natural Trim"

Some things are very difficult to explain in a book. Many subjects from the book have to do with movement and for that a DVD is a much more suitable medium. The DVD therefore contains additional detailed explanations. The DVD also contains a number of trims where we not only show what we do, but also explain why we do it.
The pocket book is a booklet in a handy format that you can take with you to your horse if you want to carry out hoof maintenance yourself. It contains a quick guide so you can check on the spot what to do.
Part of the package is a discount voucher worth 79.95 Euro for the Natural Hair Trim course . This course fits in perfectly with the multimedia package, so that coupon is a bonus!
What is it not?
This package does not replace a complete hoof trimmer training. The emphasis of this package is on providing information. The manual for trimming yourself is extensive, but of course does not cover all possible problem situations.

For whom the package is intended is aptly described in the introduction to the book:
This book is written for people looking for ways to get and keep horse hooves as healthy as possible. This briefly summarizes the essence of this book.
Although this book contains a step-by-step guide to groom your horse yourself, this book is more than just a guide. This book is also a valuable source of information for those who do not actually want to take up the hoof rasp themselves. In any case, you will learn how to get and keep the horse's hooves healthier and what maintenance the hooves need. Whether you actually carry out this maintenance yourself or have it carried out by someone else is ultimately of less importance.
Moreover, this book is not only about trimming, but also about the other factors that determine the health of the hoof, such as the nutrition and the amount and type of exercise the horse receives.
It is not necessary to have any knowledge of need before starting this book. However, this book is also written in such a way that advanced users, veterinarians and farriers can easily skip certain chapters.
This book is also used as a theory book in the Natural Trim course .
