Horses with navicular or founder can’t go barefoot?

By contrary, proper barefoot trimming (often coupled with the use of therapeutic boots) can make a huge difference for these horses. I’ve read countless stories about horses healing from death-sentence conditions with the help of a knowledgeable barefoot trimmer. Again, barefoot is more than just pulling the shoes–you must take diet and environment into account with laminitic horses, especially.

And with navicular, many horses heal very well once the shoes are pulled and the hooves are trimmed properly.
