"Natural Balance Shoeing" 2 Disk DVD Set
This video is designed to give individuals interest in Natural Balance some comprehensive information regarding Natural Balance hoof preparation, application of Natural Balance® Shoes, Pads and Impression Material. We will also offer some instruction for horses with mismatched feet, underrun and contracted heels, as well as horses that are base narrow or pigeon toed. Our intentions are to give you some guidelines for recognizing hoof distortions and explain how they relate to performance and lameness issues, as well as discuss possible causes for hoof distortions & how to prevent them from a simple, common sense perspective.
Natural Balance Hoof Care draws on the work of many educators, & practitioners that have contributed to the evolution of conventional farriery, as most of it fits well with the recent science and common sense approach of Natural Balance. At the same time, some of the new information covered in this video talks about load sharing, the sole callus, the importance of dirt in the foot, and why it is important for the horse to land heel first. Part of this information was inspired by studies and observations of self-maintained feet of feral and domestic horses, with collaborating research and contributions by many equally concerned individuals. The many recent scientific and histological studies that have been done in the past 15 years help to further confirm and add to the ongoing efforts to uncover the mysteries of the foot. In light of the common sense approach to hoof care that Natural Balance offers, many horses have overcome hoof distortions and lameness issues to become the champions they were destined to be.
The NB Shoeing video is a 2 volume series with a total run time of over 170 minutes. Volume 1 includes a lecture and dialogue covering some updated information on anatomy and biomechanics of the foot. We then go into detailed hoof preparation and shoe placement for fairly normal feet, both front and hind applications. In Volume 2 we go into equal detail on how to deal with clubbed or mismatched feet, underrun & contracted heels, and pigeon toed feet.
