The damage done to your horses hooves will not disappear after one trim. It took time for the damage to occur.
It will take time to heal the damage. A hoof may take six months to a year to rebuild itself. Be patient. Things may get worse before they get better. Damaged and degraded hoof material needs to be removed for new healthy tissue to develop.
A qualified NHCP is correcting what is correctable and letting the horse grow out a new hoof.
Most problems, such as flaring, long toes, high heels, poor frog stimulation can be helped during a relatively short trimming period by a few good trims.
