Barefoot trimming as a specialized profession has grown in popularity over the last 25 years, with many people finding it to be a very fulfilling, full-time career.  For many others, learning the skills required to perform basic hoof care maintenance on their own horses is all they desire.  Regardless of your end goals, this course is designed to give beginner, novice & even seasoned trimmers detailed hands-on training necessary for maintaining barefoot horses. We will focus on recognizing foot types & their needs, how to deal with distortions, and how to trim feet in a safe & effective manner.  You will not only learn what to trim and how to trim, but also important skills regarding body positioning, horse comfort and effective tool usage.  This is an excellent opportunity to build and fine tune your skills, as well as improve the proficiency & quality of your work.  If certification is also important as a future goal, this course also qualifies as a certification preparatory course.

  • Basic equine lower limb anatomy
  • Leverages on the hoof capsule and its possible effects
  • Recognizing distortions in the hoof & reading hoof tissue
