PRO-active Integrative Hoof Care—1 day Intensive Event with Integrative Hoof Expert Beccy Smith BSc ADAEP EBW - Holistic Equine Podiatrist & Consultant

This event focuses on assessment & recognition of healthy ideals to help prevent lameness & appreciate our PRO-Active and integrative approach to whole horse hoof care. 

Prevention is always better than cure and this is now more relevant than ever with lameness on the increase! This course will help you become a more responsible horse carer and equien professional by recognising signs of ill health earlier and facilitating well-being and lasting resilience in your horse from head to toe!

This is a very intensive course & topics include:

· Recognising ideal posture and hoof proportions and signs of pathology & distortions in the hoof

· Hoof scoring for pro-active whole horse hoof care & choosing interventions (shoe/boot/pad/barefoot?)

· Practice assessing posture & hoof proportions including hoof mapping & scoring

· The importance of teamwork for an integrative approach to promoting healthy ideals

· Demo map, assessment, hoof score & PRO-Active trim on a barefoot horse utilising Metron-Hoof Software and imaging
