Testimonials

The Houston Mounted Police Patrol Unit is making international headlines these days and being recognized as a front-runner in the natural horse movement.  The Unit went barefoot years ago and has recently made the decision to go bitless as well!

Metal Shoes and Bits Outlawed ‘Round these Parts!

At one time, the mounted unit herd was managed very traditionally, but the officers found they were constantly dealing with hoof issues and other ailments that that we have come to understand can be caused or exacerbated by use of metal shoes.  Metal shoes on asphalt refer concussive force which travels through the hoof and up the leg of the horse.  In 1984 Swiss Cavalry at the University of Zurich, Switzerland conducted research into the effect of metal shoeing.  Studies showed that the impact force a shod hoof receives on hard ground is 10-33 times that of an unshod hoof.  The vibration in the hoof from the shoe is approximately 800 hz.  (This level of vibration is high enough to DESTROY LIVING TISSUE).    The metal shoes were also restricting the natural flex function of the hoof when bearing weight, and therefore limiting much-needed blood supply to the hoof and lower leg. Due to these issues, the unit decided it couldn’t hurt to try something new, and in 2004, they experimented by having one horse go barefoot.  It was so successful that they now keep their entire herd (40 horses) barefoot!  They noticed the health of their horses improve greatly, and the vet bills were cut in HALF!  They also experienced better traction on slick surfaces, which helps both the officers and horses to feel safer when on patrol. Hard to argue with that!  AND the force has recently decided to go Bitless as well, with great success!
