One day clinic  | 6-10 students

Please note: I am no longer offering clinics in Ontario as I am now living in BC

The hoof trimming clinic ontario offers you the chance to learn about hooves and barefoot hoofcare including how to perform a maintenance trim on your own horse.

More and more horses are experiencing hoof problems these days, many of which could be avoided by following a more natural approach to hoof care. No Hoof, No Horse has never been more true.

Navicular, Laminitis and Insulin Resistance are on the increase but this clinic will teach you many ways in which you can lower the risks (and lessen vet bills!) for your horse.

Correct hoof form, based on Mother Nature's design, goes a long way towards this. Subtle differences in trim methods can help restore hooves to their original healthy state.

You will also learn the best methods of horse keeping that allow your horse to be healthier, happier and fitter.

Topics covered in the hoof trimming clinic ontario:

  • anatomy of the hoof and its role and function
  • how to assess the health of the hooves
  • learn why it is SO important to provide proper hoof care and living conditions especially in young horses and how this foundation leads to a longer working life for your horse
  • how to recognise and deal with common hoof related ailments such as abscesses, cracks, thrush, white line disease, laminitis, side bone and navicular
