Introduction to Barefoot Hoofcare

30th October 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Event Navigation

Join Lindsay Setchell, editor of The Barefoot Horse Magazine and part of the Hoofing Marvellous team, for a presentation on barefoot hoofcare.
Natural Hoofcare principles are based upon one of Mother Nature’s finest creations….the Wild Hoof. Sadly in our modern domestic horses it is in fact difficult to find a horse with hooves which are as healthy as their wild counterparts. Equus Cabullus – the modern horse – has not changed for millions of years and the domestic horse we see today is that same equine, their digestive systems, biomechanics, in fact the whole horse, other than specific breed characteristics, are no different to the horses in the wild. The problem our domestic horses face….. domesticity….and the resulting pathologies that come with it.

Take your HOOF knowledge to the next LEVEL by learning about Natural Horse Care from an experienced barefoot specialist. Learn how you can achieve optimum health for your horse and their hooves, through species appropriate diet, management and trimming.

Tickets £15/person – to be purchased in advance.
