Beginning Trim, Anatomy, and Dissection – CA

Explore distal limb anatomy and trimming dissection. We will be doing a review of anatomy while trimming cadaver hooves, and then dissecting them.
This clinic fulfills the Beginning Anatomy clinic requirement for PHCP students.

What to bring

  • Dress in layers and be prepared for warm or cool weather.  We will be outside and will have cover if necessary.  Quincy is at 3500′ so it can be chilly!
  • Notebook and Pen
  • Trimming Tools (if you have them and are able to travel with them);  Gloves, nippers, hoof knife, rasp, and chaps/apron. If you aren’t able to bring tools, please let me know so I can be sure I have plenty of extras on hand.


Lunch and drinks will be included and provided at the clinic. If you have dietary restrictions there are grocery stores and restaurants nearby. We will take an hour lunch and will have plenty of time to enjoy a meal.


Visit Anatomy of the Equine and to get familiar with the distal limb anatomy before you attend the clinic.


Quincy is a lovely small town (population 5000) and the clinic is located downtown, near hotels, grocery shopping, and restaurants. Depending on your preferences and budget, Quincy has bed & breakfast type accommodations, hotels, and there are also beautiful places to camp if that is your style. Make your reservations sooner rather than later as beds fill up in this area.

I encourage folks to coordinate with other clinic attendees for car rentals and hotels if you’d like to save on money. If you would like to explore this option, email or text me at 530-521-2379 and I will help put you in touch with other attendees who are also interested in sharing.

The clinic will start at 9am each day and end at 5:00pm.

The clinic location is 194 Cate St, Quincy Ca 95971 and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport is an easy 1.5 hours drive away.
