In this webinar you will learn about the special needs of foals when it comes to hoof care. Kirsten Proctor will teach trimming, handling, and how to evaluate and address the conformation of a foal.

I was training racehorses when my personal riding horse began struggling with low grade laminitis.  I became fascinated with the path of rehabilitation that helped him recover.  I spent a couple of years working on my own herd and trying to take in all the information I could from many different people and resources.  I decided to take the leap to leave racing and pursue hoof care full time.  It’s been a rewarding journey and my passion has become the early hoof care of foals.

Kirsten is a PHCP member and hoof care provider working out of Saratoga, NY.
