About the Course
This course Day 14 is opened to any horse owner, vet or hoof trimmer/farrier who has attended the appropriate number of proceeding numbered day courses, that wants to further their knowledge in hoof care. These trimming courses are designed to further your hoof care knowledge.
The course will cover half a day of theory and half a day of trimming. We will cover the bilogical engineering structures of the equine hoof and how nature has designed them to withstand the forces faced by the horse every hour and day of its life.
As this is the last course offered in these basic trimming clinics we will answer some of the most through provoking challenges the horses are faced with every day. And how the horse has evolved over years of evolution to develop the single digit bone called the distal phalanx or commonly know as the pedial bone so it can cope with the speed, stress and loading forces placed upon it when completing its daily task and withstanding the constant forces of gravity.
