"Hi Andrew & Nicki, 

We would just like to say thank you for a fantastic workshop yesterday. We all learnt so much and really enjoyed the day. 

We spent the day today practicing on a few more of our horses, hoping that all of yesterdays information would sink in. Thanks again!

Standard One Day Trimming Workshop

(scroll down for dates)

An intensive one day workshop that is informative and hands on. Learn how to maintain your own horse's hooves yourself or just come along to learn the science of healthy feet so you can make informed decisions about your horse's hoofcare. Workshop emphasis is on safety, ergonomics and how to make a hard job easier. Tools, aprons and hoof stands are provided on the day. Find out how to trim your horses' feet from a master farrier who's been "down under" horses full time for 20 years.
