Many, many novice trimmers have begun armed with only this DVD and the Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care. It is 2 hrs and 40 minutes long and packed with everything Jaime felt a beginner would need to know to tackle the natural trim.

As a master trimmer, Jaime makes horse handling and trimming look easy. How does he do it? In addition to demonstrating excellent trimming technique, Jaime will share with you the numerous professional tricks and tips which he's learned in many years of working with horses, both shod and barefoot. As Jaime says,
"when done properly, trimming isn't a difficult job." The key is to do it properly, and Jaime will show you how.

Although created for beginning trimmers, this DVD has proven helpful to many experienced trimmers. What better way to learn the basics of the natural trim than at the side of Jaime Jackson, who has been referred to as the "father of modern natural hoof care".

This is a no-frills, hands-on video, not a Hollywood-style production -- just solid information presented in a clear, straightforward and accessible manner.

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you read and be familiar with the 
Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care to get the maximum benefit from this DVD. The book explains the how and why of the natural trim, and then the DVD gives you the chance to see the theory applied in live action.
