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.

Advanced Two Day Trimming Workshop

This 2 day workshop aims to refresh and consolidate basic maintenance trimming and take your hoof management knowledge, observation and practical skills to a higher level. We aim to help solve any problems you may be having; either with your horse handling/tool skills/trimming or your horse’s progression as a barefoot mount. We will also update you with recent developments in the continuing evolution of equine hoof care.

Pre-requisite: Previous attendance at our Standard Workshop.
