Join us for a hands-on clinic 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 hoof care duties for your herd entirely, this clinc will get you started off on the right foot – er, hoof!

Not quite ready to pick up a rasp yet? Audit the clinic to become a more educated consumer of hoof care 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 clinic?

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 Clinic Information Packet.

  • hands-on practice – trim at least one hoof from start to finish
