Step 2

Step 2 – Beginning clinic

The beginning clinic is a three day clinic which covers the basics of distal limb anatomy, trimming on cadavers, dissection, shoe removal, transitioning to barefoot, hoof protection options and more.

New students should also view the Introduction to Equine Diet and Lifestyle online as a PowerPoint or PDF version.

The beginning clinic must be completed before entering step 4 Independent Study. There will be an entrance exam to Independent Study on material covered in the beginning clinic and Introduction to Equine Diet and Lifestyle.

You may schedule one or two of your step 3 beginning mentorships before attending a beginning clinic.
