Home HealthyHoof SignsofPain Barefoot Trimming Navicular Founder Links Contact


Dear visitor of our site,

on this site we'd like to supply you with information around the hoof:

- how a healthy hoof should look like
- how to recognize discomfort of the horse
- how to overcome typical "barefoot" problems (boots, floor...)
- how to trim a healthy hoof
- reasons for navicular problems
- rehabilitation of foundered hooves

The site is not finished yet and will hopefully grow.

Natural management of horses will give your young horses the chance to grow healthy hooves, bones, tendons and cartilage. Your mature horses will thank you by staying healthy, fit and ready to perform.
It is especially important during rehabilitation of health problems at the hoof (founder, navicular,
poor horn quality), musculosceletal system (arthrosis) or bronchial problems.
Natural management does however not mean having your horses on acres of muddy meadows.
For modern "natural" herd management systems, please enjoy our site wildhorse.at.

Best regards

Dipl.-Ing. Sonja Appelt - mechanical engineer and natural hoof care expert
Dr. Matthias Gerss - chemist and consultant for active stable systems
