Clive says about his craft
I believe in looking at the whole horse and not just the foot, this forms part of a talk I sometimes give on the “balance of the equine foot”. I try and understand as much as I can about the equine foot and horses in general. As every part of the horse is linked you never know where the answer to a problem may lie.
