This one day introductory course covers the theory and introduces the practice of Natural hoof care (sometimes referred to as barefoot trimming). This is a practical workshop which includes demonstrations and lots of hands on work with real horses! It is therefore only suitable for horse owners and people who regularly work with horses

The course starts in the morning with an introduction to natural hoof care. We talk about the anatomy of the hoof, discuss the pro and cons of natural hoof care versus shoeing, and look at the practicalities of trimming your horse yourself. After a short lunch break, there is a trimming demonstration, which includes an explanation of how to handle a horse for trimming with emphasis on safety and making the job easier for your horse and your back. The rest of the day is taken up by trimming practice. Everyone gets a chance to put rasp to hoof, and by the end of the workshop, participants will have a good idea of what a healthy hoof looks like, and will have the knowledge and confidence needed to do a maintenance trim on a fully transitioned barefoot horse.

Christophe learnt natural hoof care from Dermot McCourt, an ex-farrier with huge expertise in the area of natural hoof care. He regularly trims his seven horses (and occasionally equines belonging to neighbours or friends) and has been teaching barefoot trimming since 2009.

Cost is ‚ā¨120 for the day (or whatever you can afford, contact me), including lunch.

Next course Monay 26th of July.
