It is classroom based theory in the morning and practical hands-on in the afternoon with demonstration trimming and cadaver trim tuition and hoof dissection.
Participants will learn the principles and practice of natural hoof care and horse keeping, the distal limb anatomy, recognising and treating common hoof pathologies, the relevance of the wild horse, measuring and fitting hoof boots and learn to recognise land marks on the hoof to trim safely to.
