William Miller and Rosa Stackhouse-Miller at NAKED HORSE work with the healing power of nature to change the relationship you have with your horse by trimming and looking at all aspects of the Horses' life.

We are proud members of the "family" of the world's leading proponents of Natural hoof Care and Rehabilitation through the 3 steps to Soundness, by trimming the hooves how they would in their natural environment. We use our trim and the healing power of nature to return horses to soundness over time. We say "take the time it takes" and the horse proves to us that the 3 Steps to Soundness is the key to natural hoof care.

For the past 15 years we have been shown by observing the horse, that if the horse cannot wear their heels, the bars or hoof wall through movement and different terrain, then we must take it off for them.

Ride them or Rasp them is still our mantra.


We also acknowledge the work of Hildred Strasser, Jamie Jackson and Paul Chapman who got us going on the journey which has not ended; remember it is NOT the destination.....
