This is a programme for the busy equine advocate or professional without any prior hoof or mapping knowledge, who wants to better understand horses hoof health and enjoy the benefits this provides.

There really is no horse without a healthy, optimally functioning hoof. But what, you might ask, is a healthy hoof?… this course will help you ‘see’ the hoof and even objectively measure any hoof from a lateral photograph and using modern podiatry and farriery science it will help you understand if it has ideal or unhealthy morphology (function and form). Knowing this will help you make more informed decisions and tailor your hoof care or professional advice based on where you want the hoof to be in the future, and track minute changes along the way

If you care for or work with horses, you need to understand what is a healthy hoof, and what is an unhealthy hoof as well as be able to accurately and objectively assess hooves and posture using evidence based research, as well as how to track changes over time, and in response to efforts to support horses well being from the hoof, up.

In this programme, there are 28 high quality lessons including 28 videos and nearly 6 hours of recordings including community calls which contnue to be added, and all in an easy to understand format designed to super-boost your understanding of the equine hoof like never before. All delivered by leading integrative (body and hoof) equine podiatry rehab specialist and founder of Holistic Equine, Beccy Smith.

This course also provides guidance and insight into mapping the horses posture using the same hoof mapping tool used to map the hoof.

What students say about Beccy and our educational events

Holistic Equine Heart Logo Colour Wht Ba

"The thing I love most is the science backed, horse led approach

She passionately educated me and empowered me to learn more about hoof morphology and it's affect on the entire horse. Her wealth of knowledge on the whole horse and holistic approach really feels how modern horse care should be. Now I've been exposed to what healthy hooves should actually look like, I don't think I'll ever be able to unsee it!"
