Our little shop is online selling bespoke professional Horse Products, Hoof Care Products and Novelties and will expand as we expand, come and grow with us.
Ever Heard of the Phrase, A Horse Has Five Hearts?
Horses, like other mammals, have only one heart. However, the frog in each hoof acts like a pump to push blood back up the leg with each step a horse takes. When the hoof is set down on the ground (Barefoot of course), it expands and fills with blood. When it is picked up, it contracts and the blood is sent back up the hoof to the heart. Roughly a litre of blood is pumped through the body every twenty strides. Hence, each hoof is a ‘heart’ giving a horse five hearts.
Horse owners are becoming more aware and educated about keeping horses in a more natural environment that benefits the horse, they give so much to us and they teach us so much, if we listen.
“Horses are individuals, and unless we understand the individual, we cannot expect the individual to understand us.”
Emma has come from many years study (and is still always learning! ). She has worked really hard and earned her Certified Credentials as a Professional Barefoot Trimmer and Mentor with Liberated Horsemanship and is also certified with alternative therapies in the arts of Healing, Equine Iridology, Herbalism, Permaculture, Massage, Aromatherapy and is a Reiki Master. She will never stop learning.
Emma has studied under various trimming techniques giving her a rounded approach, observing the different philosophies and methodologies. Her strong influences have been from Jamie Jackson's teachings, Bruce Nock Of Liberated Horsemanship, Nick Hill mentored Emma in Bulgaria with Ralitsa Grancharova, DVM, MRCVS who is an equine vet, barefoot trimmer and acupuncturist, Pete Ramey, KC LaPierre USA, Maureen Tierney, Equine Podiatry UK, including familiasitation of Nic Barker's approach at Rockley Farm.
In addition, when Emma was riding in Mongolia for the Gobi Gallop 2019 (The longest annual charity horseback ride in the world), She studied the hooves of the Mongolian horses by living alongside the Mongolian herdsmen. Emma believes this has gained her a solid rounded approach to Horse Health and Hoof Care Management.
Over the years we have developed Angel Fields, this is our home where we keep our horses Organically and Naturally. We run a small boutique Natural Boarding & Rehabilitation Retreat for horses and their humans, this is under the care and ownership of Emma Bailey at Barefoot Holistic Hoofcare; Certified Practitioner and Mentor with Liberated Horsemanship.
We have a Detached Quirky Cottage overlooking the horse yard for when horse owners or holiday makers want to visit their horses and we hold small bespoke clinics and holidaying.
The hot tub goes down a treat!
Anyone wishing to come on holiday are welcome and you can bring your horses, a short box out brings you to the lovely riding beach at Conwy and the renowned rides around “The Carneddau Mountain range in the Snowdonia National Park, it is terrific ! This is home to a small population of around 300 semi-feral Carneddau ponies whose history is thought to date back to the Bronze Age. We are on the edge of Bodnant Estate and have some of the most quiet hilly circular rides from our doorstep.
As well as Natural Horse livery and Horse holidays, We have horses in occasionally, who come to us needing specialist one to one attention that have various ailments affecting their feet. We work with the horse to improve their Health and HOOF soundness, we are proud of our success rate here and in the field with our regular clients.
We are humble and work hard for the horse's welfare. This service can be requested personally to Emma. We have been seeking out more natural alternatives for our horses. We have established ORGANIC REWILDING projects on our own land, allowing all of our herd of horses to live FREE, following leaders in this movement such as Isabella Tree at her rewinding project Knepp Wildland UK. This has excited us and helped us develop more into doing things the way nature intended, working on behalf of the horse and trying to earn a living from something that we love.
Emma assists with the Trimming and Hoof Care at Liane and Andy's at their Natural Boarding / Retirement and Rehabilitation Retreat of Three Ravens. Working with the individual horses and their individual needs, they work hard to improve their Horses General Health, Hoof Health and Soundness, looking at each horse holistically and emotionally. Liane and Andy are proud of their achievements; and so they should be. There is a waiting list for anyone wishing to have their horse attend.
We are so delighted with our approach and the products chosen for our small online shop, that they have done an excellent job in marketing themselves. We have recommendations from horse owners and hoof care networks all around the UK, Europe, USA and now Australia. We are the only stockist of HOOFARMOR in the UK, working closely with David and Brenda Jones.
LOVE, CARE, DEDICATION, WORD OF MOUTH , COMMUNICATION and EFFICIENCY is our marketing strategy, we love horses and want to bring a darn good old fashioned service to our customers with a modern approach.
Emma LISTENS to her customers in the field — they drive us to select and develop and expand further products. Emma has tried and tested the trimming tools on sale and they come with very high professional standards, being demonstrated and put to work by her and professional colleagues and clients.
