Environment - An Important Factor
Domestication dictates the environment a horse inhabits. It holds the key to how within domestication we can pro-actively return hoof health, balance and general well being by providing the stimulus to achieve equilibrium of function, needed to succeed in rehabilitation, maintenance and to improve performance.
Environment surrounds us but is not just where the horse inhabits but also includes nutrition, exercise, weight of horse and rider, attitude or everything outside the control of the domesticated horse. It involves using what nature has provided in our own settings. This can require imagination on how to use what is available and sometimes an additional financial outlay to provide the necessary conditions to achieve Whole Horse Hoof Health.
