What's Included?

Overview of the workshop

Learn about Natural Horse & Hoof Care from experienced HMIS barefoot specialist instructors.

Let them guide you over the course of 3 days on how to achieve optimum health for your horse and their hooves, through diet, management, basic trimming and horse handling.

By the end of the 3 days you’ll know:

  • what is meant by a species-specific diet
  • what constitutes an equine healthy hoof and how to recognise hoof pathologies
  • the anatomy of the lower leg
  • how to maintain your own horse’s hooves in-between professional trims

Be informed

This workshop will give you all the education and information you need to be able to have meaningful conversations with your vet, farrier/trimmer, body workers, and extended equine team.

The right trim

This workshop will show you the correct trim through theory and hands on cadaver trimming, in a safe and well controlled environment. This will enable you to maintain your horse’s hooves in-between pro trims.

Hoof problems

We encourage owners to come to the workshop with photos and videos of their own horses, so that we can advise you on the best way forward to help heal any problems your horse is facing – including laminitis and navicular.
