Natural Barefoot Trimming and Hoof Rehabilitation by Richard Zewe
I started Trimming my own horses back in early 2008, under the direction of a very good local Trimmer by the name of Rachael Coggins. Rachael is a certified Strasser Trimmer, but changed course from Dr. Hiltrud Strasser's more aggressive methods, taking the best of Strasser, and combining that with what she eventually learned from Trimmers like Pete Ramey. Rachael has trimmed horses for over 15 Years using this Natural Method. I still go out and trim with Rachael and have also trimmed with Eddie Drabek and Harbes Trimming as well. I believe that you must learn from as many different points of view as possible, because there is no one way to trim every hoof out there.
I also have attended a Pete Ramey clinic that was held in the Houston area just recently in Februrary 2015.
I'm not in this just to make money. I love doing this! I love the horses and I love the type of people that I meet while trimming. I also used to be the assistant Ranch Manager at Habitat For Horses.
