3-Day Bare Hoof Trimming Clinic
During this course, we will take a comprehensive look at bare hoof trimming or shoeing. Our goal is to help owners who want to have a basic knowledge of what to look for in a good bar hoof trim or shoeing. We will look at and dissect cadaver hoofs to unravel the intricacies of the horse's hoof and how it functions. Each student will have a chance to trim a cadaver hoof and their own personal horse. We will have space for only 10 students.
Add paddock fees if you are bringing your own horse.

This course is a comprehensive course for anyone looking for a new career with horses. This is an in-depth, intensive course of anatomy, mechanics, and techniques of the barefoot trim.

We will have space for only 12 students. There will be a certificate of completion after the course is finished.
