Redemption Farm offers all inclusive full care barefoot hoof rehabilitation boarding. Mild cases may get shoes pulled (if not already barefoot), get acclimated and introduced, then move onto the track right away. More severe hoof pathology may require more specialized individual care until they are stabilized. We have a limited number of small private paddocks as needed for critical cases.
Many horses utilize boots and pads during rehab, but composite shoes or casts are available as well. Some horses hit the ground running and do great barefoot right away. Each case is treated individually.
Services include hoof trimming, booting, casting, or composite shoes as appropriate for each case. Rehab boarding includes everything listed on the Natural Retirement Boarding page, plus all hoof care, including thrush or white line treatment and therapeutic boot changes. Basic stretches or body rehab exercises may be included as appropriate. Boots, casts, Hoof Armor, composite shoes, and gluing materials are charged on a case by case basis, as needed.
We have several talented practitioners available for bodywork and rehab to help get horses moving correctly, which facilitates faster hoof healing.
Healing the hooves is really about healing the whole horse. Once the whole horse is healthy, good strong hooves soon follow. It is all about Movement, Diet, and Trim.
We prefer working with veterinarians, especially on more serious rehab cases. Hoof radiographs are required upon admission and a treatment plan will be designed.
Please note that we do not utilize traditional metal shoes for our rehab cases here. Our focus is on healing the hoof naturally with a realigning trim, diet, and movement as appropriate for each case. Hoof boots or composite shoes may be utilized as needed for comfort or improved biomechanics.
Basic rehab board starts at $950 per month. More intensive cases may have higher rates.
