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 handle

  • 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 rasp

  • 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 ponies

  • 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.
