The sensational new trimming tool designed for
barefoot trimmers, those wishing to trim their own horses or for
those just wishing to tidy up their horses hooves between visits of
their regular trimmer
The method of trimming has now changed . No
longer do we just rasp the hoof flat but we actually now sculpt the
hoof to replicate that of a wild horse. This method of
trimming eliminates flare and splits. The Barefoot Sculptor is
designed for the "Barefoot trim"
The unique design and position of the
increases cutting power
clear advantage for less physical trimmers
when the hooves are dry and hard
positions the hand away from the rasp so no
more pain from jamming your rasping hand between the hoof and the
allows you to rasp with one hand.
Simply hold the hoof with one hand and rasp with the other
increases control of the rasp allowing more
effective shaping of the hoof
allows more room to work on hooves under small
adjustable rasp angle
The rasp can be attached to the handle two
ways to suit the trimmers preference.
The suggested setting is to have the coarse
side facing down and the smooth side facing up.
In this position the coarse side is used to
lower the heels, scoop the quarters, bevel the outer hoof wall and
roll the toe.
It is recommended for ease of cutting, when rasping with the
coarse side, to maintain an inside to outside stroke. Always stroke
from the frog towards the white line and outer hoof wall which
ensures a smooth stroke and prevents the rasp grabbing the outside
hoof wall. To be able to maintain this inside to outside stroke on
both sides of the horse the Barefoot Sculptor can be used with a
backhanded stroke as indicated in the photo opposite.
The recommended position for removing flare
from the outside lower hoof wall is to turn the handle over with
the coarse side facing up and rasp with the smooth side of the
rasp. Less physical trimmers can place the fingers on the rasp as
indicated in the photo opposite ignoring the handle. This position
increases the cutting ability of the smooth side by providing
extra pressure over the cutting area and gives added control.
The Barefoot Sculptor can also change the
angle of the rasp with a simple press of a button. This may be an
advantage for some trimmers individual styles.
To replace the rasp use either a
screwdriver, coin or hoof pick to remove the securing screw.
