"Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility, he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent, there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient... we are his heirs, he is our inheritance."

--THE HORSE by Ronald Duncan

Welcome to the home of The Naked Hoof. My name is Marian Figley, and I am a natural hoofcare advocate and trimmer. I have trained with Cindy Sullivan (Tribe Equus), Jaime Jackson (AANHCP), Pete Ramey (Hoof Rehab), Todd Jaynes (Natural Hoof Care) and several other wonderful farriers and trimmers willing to take the time to educate and enlighten.

This site is dedicated to promoting the natural hoof and natural horse care to the best of our (sometimes limited) abilities. I encourage you to explore the resources I have gathered by navigating the "resources" link above. These resources may include information regarding other styles of trim because there is a huge wealth of information to be gleaned from many of these sites.
