New Research on why Barefoot Horses remain Sounder than Shod Horses

New Research on why Barefoot Horses remain Sounder than Shod Horses


For decades hoof rehabilitators and horse owners have experienced extraordinary results with taking previously shod horses barefoot. But with next to no specific research comparing the performance of a barefoot hoof to a shod hoof, the debate between pro-shoe horse people and anti-shoe horse people have relied mostly on belief, tradition and personal experience.


Now, a new comprehensive research project by The Swedish Agricultural University (SLU) and Agria Animal Insurance is well on the way to scientifically determine the difference between the barefoot hoof and the shod horse hoof. The preliminary results from the first phase of data analysis confirms: Traditional horseshoes affect the function of the horse’s hooves.

“The iron shoe locks the so-called hoof mechanism especially when landing after obstacles. The shod hoof can’t expand or contract as much as the barefoot hoof because the shoe inhibits lateral movement. It could mean that the blood flow in the shod hooves is inhibited, and this blood flow is important for the hooves to be healthy,” said Professor Lars Roepstorff, who is the head scientist on the study.
