In 1988 we began an all-out study, on not just sound shoeing, but maintaining the sound horse to allow him to perform at his peak. Horse owners began bringing us their horses to evaluate. Many at one time had the chance to be champions whether it be in cutting, running barrels, hunter jumper events, racing, and on and on. In our evaluations, we would discover that the most important part of the horse had been overlooked and neglected. These horses had received too many improper trims! And further evaluations showed that neither the amateur person trimming, nor the owner knew what they were trying to achieve with each trim or shoeing their particular horse.
