Horseshoes are not used but domesticated horses may still require trimming, exercise and other measures to maintain a natural shape and degree of wear.

  • L'utilizzo del cavallo scalzo (in inglese barefoot horse) è una pratica che si sta recentemente diffondendo grazie al Barefoot movement (Movimento per il cavallo scalzo) basato soprattutto sulle osservazioni e sulle esperienze pratiche di Jaime Jackson. Tale movimento si propone di riportare il cavallo alle condizioni originali eliminando la pratica della ferratura. (it)
  • Natural hoof care is the practice of keeping horses so that their hooves are worn down naturally and so do not suffer overgrowth, splitting and other disorders. Horseshoes are not used but domesticated horses may still require trimming, exercise and other measures to maintain a natural shape and degree of wear. Within the natural hoof care philosophy, the term barefoot horses refers to horses which are kept barefoot full-time, as opposed to horses who are fitted with horseshoes. The hooves of barefoot horses are trimmed with special consideration to a barefoot lifestyle. The barefoot horse movement advocates a generalized use of barefoot horses, both in non-competitive and competitive riding, often coupled with a more natural approach to horse care. Horses are kept barefoot in many parts of the world, including South America, Mongolia and other industrialized and non-industrialized cultures. (en)
