Equine Hoof Care Two Day Workshop

The health of your equine is reflected in their feet –

  The morning of the first day will be spent looking into the anatomy and function of the equine foot. The focus will be on recognising and achieving healthy feet. We will also look into common foot problems and how to deal with them.

  We will be discussing what defines a healthy horse. By looking at equines from an evolutionary and ethological perspective we can begin to understand what is healthy and normal. We can then use this information to apply a whole horse approach to equine health and well being.

  The afternoon is focused on simplifying the complexities relating to foot health, paying particular attention to the role of obesity and the associated metabolic/endocrine disorders. It will enable you to recognise the early warning signs of potential problems and give positive ideas and solutions on how to deal with them.

  The second day is a lower limb dissection giving participants the opportunity to look more closely into the anatomy and function covered in the theory section of the workshop.

Questions welcome!

  This workshop is from a barefoot perspective but relevant whether your horse is barefoot or shod. Healthy hooves = Happy Horses
