Beginning Trimming, Anatomy and Dissection

This clinic fulfills the Beginning Anatomy clinic requirement for PHCP students.

Prerequisite

Visit Anatomy of the Equine and purchase the Apps or Ebooks. Spend time on this web site and get familiar with the distal limb anatomy before you attend the clinic.

Lunch is included.

If possible, students should bring their own tools (gloves, apron, nippers, rasp, knife, hoof pick and stand) but we will have some to share if need be especially for those flying.

If you have a cadaver leg of your own you would like to dissect with us please let us know and bring it along. Cadaver legs are getting harder to come by and can be quite expensive.  If you have access to some we would be grateful.

Jeannean Mercuri lives on Long Island where she operates her hoof care business. She began her journey into barefoot trimming in 2001. She joined PHCP in 2009 and went on to become a Mentor, Clinician and Director of Education in our training program. Teaching and continuing her own education are passions for Jeannean. Years of working with Gerdas Equine rescue in Vermont and referrals from local Veterinarians on the tough founder cases have given her extensive experience with hoof protection in her rehab work as well as for clients needing hoof boots for everyday riding.
