Exploring the Equine Hoof

Ida Hammer of  Whole Horse Trimming presents this introductory course for beginners.

This is a five-hour lecture using Power Point and preserved cadaver specimens. It is scheduled the day before her Beginner Trimming clinic and it’s recommended you take these together if you are new to natural hoof care.

Topics covered:

Heel first vs. Toe first landings

The inner structures of the distal limb and what influences them: diet, exercise, proper trimming, environment

Pathologies: club foot, founder, navicular, white line disease, thrush

This class counts as a PHCP Elective.
