About Daniel Anz

Daniel Anz was born in Argentina. He specializes in finding the horse's body balance through hoof trimming. He is one of the leading equine podiatrists engaged in teaching and research. He is internationally renowned for his revolutionary F-Balance® concept.

He is the author of the books “The New Farrier, a practical guide for the new farrier nowadays” and “F-Balance, returning to the essence of equine podiatry”.

His particular vision and deep knowledge of the horse's foot have made him a reference in the teaching of the trade.

«Ever since I started combining the longitudinal flexibility of the hoof with its natural limits in 1999, my life changed forever. After understanding the natural mechanics of the foot, I could never again trim a hoof using the traditional technique. Never again, really.»
