Step 2 – Beginning Clinics
There are three required clinics in step 2. These clinics may be taken in any order.
- Beginning trim, anatomy and dissection
- Hoof protection and shoe removal
- Introduction to Equine Diet and Lifestyle. This is an online course. Download the PowerPoint or PDF version.
All beginning clinics must be completed before entering Step 4 Independent Study. There will be an entrance exam to Independent Study on materials covered in the beginning clinics.
You may schedule 1 or 2 of your step 3 beginning mentorships before taking the beginning clinics.
