Clinician:

We will have two horses that have been donated for dissection. A vet will be onsite to euthanize them prior to the clinic, and then Paige will guide the dissections with the participants. The day will be full of opportunity to dig deeper in an understanding than never before. We will have an anatomy work sheet participants can fill out to use in assisting their learning.

There is a possibility of radiographs to assist with the day.

This is a rare, possibly a once in a lifetime, opportunity to learn from two clinicians with a combined 76 years of experience and hundreds of successfully treated laminitic and foundered equines. This 2-day clinic will cover the causes, progression of physiological, morphological and biomechanical changes as well as treatment and recovery from this life-threatening condition. 

APPROVED FOR 11.75 IAPF CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS

Day 1:

Dr. Steward, the pioneer of the clog for use on laminitis and founder, will explain the history and development of the original "Steward" clog's biomechanical orthotic effects and benefits. Madeline Boast, MSc Equine Nutrition, an independent equine nutritionist, will discuss the management of your equine's diet during and after a laminitis/founder diagnosis and treatment. 

Dr. Stephanie Crawford DC CAC will then discuss the importance of supporting the whole horse utilizing a variety of modalities during treatment and recovery. 

Steve McConnell will go through the process of "creating a plan" to ensure the best possible outcome, returning the equine to mobility, building a team of professionals, setting goals and having realistic expectations for all involved. 

This will be followed by modifications to clogs and the criterion, precautions and numerous case studies ending the day with a Q&A with clinicians and speakers.

Day 2: 

Starting with a summary of day 1 we will have hands-on demonstrations of clog application for a variety of conditions, scenarios and the safe and efficient removal of clogs. Local veterinarians will be informed of the clinic and if there are current/active cases of laminitis and founder available, that can be transported to the venue safely, Dr. Steward and Steve will treat them on site in the afternoon. McKee-Pownall Equine service will be providing us with a veterinarian to not only ensure the comfort and safety of any horses there for the live demonstration but will also provide radiographs and venograms prior to and after treatment. This clinic is open to farriers, veterinarians, veterinary assistants, all equine professionals, trainers, owners and anyone interested in learning more about this life-threatening condition. There are applications out for CE credits for equine professionals where applicable and I will update as to their approval and number of credits

Venue: Ancaster Fairgrounds, in the Agriculture Event Centre. 630 Trinity Rd., Ancaster, Ontario, Canada. (This building is fully heated and has bleacher seating available).

Cost: $150/day or $250 for the weekend. Lunch provided both days.

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.
 

Topics Covered During the Course

  • Basic equine lower limb anatomy
  • Leverages on the hoof capsule and its possible effects
  • Recognizing distortions in the hoof & reading hoof tissue
  • Cadaver hoof trimming & dissections
  • Body Positioning & Tool usage, i.e. hoof knives, nippers, rasps, etc.
Course Begins at 9:00 AM and will run until 5:00 PM each of the 3 days (Thursday - Saturday).
