Join us for a hands-on workshop designed to introduce horse owners to the basics of barefoot hoof trimming. Whether your goal is to touch up trims between visits from a professional or to take over hoofcare duties for your herd entirely, this workshop will get you started off on the right foot – er, hoof!
Not quite ready to pick up a rasp yet? Audit the workshop to become a more educated consumer of hoofcare services – learn about healthy hoof anatomy and function, how to decide when your horse needs a trim, and how to recognize a balanced trim.
What will you learn in this workshop?
We’ll cover basic hoof anatomy, procedure and techniques for trimming the hoof wall using a hoof rasp and hoof stand, and how to check hoof balance using the sole as a guide. More info in the Workshop Information Packet.
