How Often Should Horses Feet/Hooves Be Trimmed/Cut?

Trimming of Horse's Feet

Horse's feet should be trimmed every 6 - 8 wks. unless under recommendation from a Veterinarian to do so differently (usually due to the wearing of Therapeutic Shoes).

Horses under three years should be trimmed every 4 wks. due to the rapid growth of hoof, and the necessity of their hoof maintaining balance & shape.

The hoof must be trimmed to maintain balance, & the function of the hoof.
