General information

Yes, because all hooves are longitudinally flexible and natural have cut-out boundaries. The F-Balance technique was not developed by the humans invented, but corresponds to a natural the hoof of the horse own property. For this reason it is present in every horse. The podologist's work is based on taking this into consideration.
Because this concept takes into account the natural clues and longitudinal flexibility of the hoof. These natural characteristics of the hoof have always been visible, but have never been taken into account during preparation.
Yes, because this new concept allows the body to be absolutely and when this is achieved, all organs will function. harmonious. If a horse does not limp, this is not a guarantee of maximum Performance and the absence of pain does not necessarily stand for good health.
  • The concept is 100% natural and respects 100% the nature of the horse ( Traditional podiatry works by changing the floor area of the hoof - taking a little more away from it and leaving a little there. This is because no concept about the natural boundaries and longitudinal flexibility of the hoof has been known before.
  • The needs of the horse are met and not those of the hoof worker ( In the conventional way of working, the podiatrist's ideas are transferred to the horse.
  • It respects 100% the conformation of the horse, no matter if it is perfect or deficient ( In conventional podiatry, this is attempted using subjective parameters; each podologist has different, personal criteria and thus also receives subjective results).
  • It can always be cut in the same way because the reference points are based on information from the hoof. This makes the work reproducible. ( A conventional hoof preparation is different every time; even with the same podiatrist, since it does not take into account any reproducible factors).
  • The objective information of the hoof makes it visible, measurable and therefore easy to teach. ( The traditional podology is not objectively teachable, because no concrete parameters are applicable.
  • As the concept is exclusively focused on the preparation of the hoof, the podologist can then apply any type of hoof protection or horseshoe or leave the horse bare hoof.
  • It makes podology simple, measurable and reproducible; and this is exactly what many podiatrists fear.


Yeah, but he has to take into account that the rating on the traditional technique, whereby the participant loses points, he should be able to see the hooves of horses with a latero-medial imbalance according to the F-balance.
There are many reasons why a large number of podiatrists do not accept the F-Balance concept. In most cases, this is due to the basic rules of human behavior. These behaviors come to light when - as in this case - new knowledge threatens established knowledge.

In the following some reasons are given which cause these for humans normal rejection of new knowledge:

  • The view of the hoof and the horse in general is diametrically opposed to the traditional technique; the F-Balance concept is simply a different way of thinking. Podiatrists and teaching institutions that use the traditional technique of equine podiatry must replace knowledge accumulated over centuries, and this is not easy.
  • Often it is assumed that the application of the concept also means a binding to the name. Those who do not want to be associated with the name of the concept decide to deny the concept. This is far from the case. Knowing and applying the concept does not oblige anyone to commit to the name in any way.
  • When we approach something new, we move away from the old accordingly. This raises natural fears, especially in the context of a new approach that is not yet 100% established worldwide.
  • Once the new concept has been understood, one automatically asks oneself what should happen to all the knowledge that has now become unusable. Since letting go is difficult and requires certain behaviours, we usually insist on the knowledge we know and remain in a state of apparent security.
  • The concept would have a negative impact on a large market that depends on the sale of therapeutic fittings and other products, which would prevent the spread of the new approach. This could be compared to the spread of peace in an environment that lives from the production of weapons.
  • Some representatives of traditional podiatry have a large number of followers who give them security. The search for new knowledge could lead to the loss of such security.
The traditional hoof preparation:

  • Always strives for flat cut hooves.
  • Does not take into account the natural limits that affect the hoof structure.
  • Does not take the natural longitudinal flexibility of the hoof into account.
  • Does not target the horse's body balance.
  • Focuses on fighting the consequences of complaints.
  • Is neither measurable nor systematically repeatable.
  • Relying on subjective evidence in the transmission of the technique.
  • Fulfills personal wishes and overlooks the needs of the horse.

  • Prepares the hoof based on visible and natural clues.
  • considers the natural longitudinal flexibility of the hoof.
  • The aim of the preparation is the equilibrium of the horse's body.
  • Focuses on resolving the causes of complaints.
  • Is measurable and systematically repeatable.
  • Bases its transmission on objective evidence.
  • Meets the needs of the horse and ignores the wishes of the podologist.

Technical questions

Because to the current knowledge about the horse's hoof, the longitudinal Flexibility of the hoof and the following and respecting of the natural boundary of the functional sole. The F-Balance enables physical stabilization and balance the horses as well as the prevention and healing of pathologies, which can be prevented by the therapeutic fittings of the traditional system merely alleviated will be. Therapeutic fittings heal the primary cause of the No complaints. The F-Balance concept rejects the use of therapeutic fittings not entirely, but uses them in the Not usually, because the horses are usually healed without these fittings. can.
When applying the F-Balance, the three traditional balances automatically and naturally. This happens because the F-Balance only uses natural parameters and thus the own Information of the horse. The Balance X (hoof seen from the front) is by shortening at the stress point and along the functional sole is produced. The Balance Y (hoof seen from above) is achieved by the Shortening at the stress point and along the functional sole as well as through the longitudinal flexibility is achieved. The Balance Z (hoof from the side ) is also achieved by shortening at the stress point and along the functional sole. The result of hoof processing along the natural boundaries of the hoof is always a harmony of the 4 Balances -X, Y, Z and F-.
