Natural Balance Horse Shoeing is using a wild horses hoof as a module to recognize the differences in domestic horse hoofs.  The main difference between Natural Balance and traditional horse shoeing is that we shoe around the bone column, not the foot capsule which is susceptible to distortion.  The first step for me when preparing the hoof for shoeing is to map the bottom of the hoof.  This allows me to locate where the coffin bone sits inside the hoof capsule.  After that I can easily find the natural point of break over and place my shoe on it accordingly, thus allowing the horse foot to break over exactly where his conformation is meant to.
