The morning session will consist of lectures covering anatomy and physiology of the hoof, how hoof health and function is affected by conformation, skills associated with trimming the balanced foot, and when shoes are necessary. The afternoon session will provide a demonstration of the trimming and shoeing process on live horses with ample time for questions. Anyone is welcome to register; no experience is necessary.
