About the event
Unique PRO-active Integrative Hoof Care inc. mapping and trimming (a Dopplehoof trimable hoof model) —1 day Intensive Educational Event with Integrative Hoof Expert Beccy Smith BSc ADAEP EBW - Integrative Equine Podiatrist & Consultant
Learn from the pros - when you know better, you can do better! 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 PRO-Active and responsive horse owner or professional by recognising indicators of a loss of health and balance in the hoof and also the posture and learning and why this is happening!
This event will also help you recognise what might be the most appropriate intervention(s) to help support a return of health and soundness and learn the value of teamwork for promoting well-being and lasting resilience in the horses we all love - from the hoof up!
This unique event also includes hoof mapping and basic trimming practice and principles under professional guidance for beginners and professionals using Dopplehoof trimable hoof model (which you get to keep!)! This is NOT a "how to trim course" but will help you become involved in maintaining the hoof between professional visits (eg, managing leverage and maintaining healthy breakover) using safe hoof mapping principles.
Registration closes 1 week before the event!
This is an intensive and practical event & includes:
- Recognising ideal hoof morphology and posture
- Review of functional anatomy of the digit
- Signs of pathology & distortions in the hoof
- How to map the hoof and relate this to the internal foot and limb
- How to document and monitor changes (inc. HoofmApp demo!)
- How to help maintain the trim between visits - learn using Dopplehoof trimable hoof model
- Selecting interventions for the individual horse - inc. hoof boots, and modern shoeing packages
- The importance of TEAMWORK in integrative horse care
No hoof care knowledge necessary. Suitable for horse owners, carers and all equine professionals including therapists, trainers, vets, EDT’s, farriers, trimmers, podiatrists saddle fitters & students. The event price includes the Dopplehoof hoof which is a trimable hoof model (which you can take home with you!) to practice hoof mapping and trimming plus basic instruction on tool use. Please bring a rasp (and handle), a knife and suitable protective clothing (cut proof gloves/armsleeves or hoof trimming gear). Note: you DO NOT have to trim on the day and will learn much from observing*
Beccy's approach to holistic horse and hoof care is unique and you won't learn her approach on other horse courses or events. Her approach is inspired by modern and progressive "horse focused" equine podiatry, barefoot and farriery industry leaders including, Yogi Sharp (The Equine Documentalist), Wayne Turner (Progressive Equine Services), and Daisy Bicking (Daisy Haven Farm) to name a few. Although her initial mentor was KC LaPierre (The Institute of Applied Equine Podiatry), Beccy is no longer "method" focused and remains truly independent in her approach to helping horses and their carers.
This is an intensive and fast paced educational event and we have limited the group to 5 to give you the best learning experience.
