Horse Hoof Trimming 101 – Getting Started Trimming Your Own Horse’s Hooves
In this course you will learn all about the basics of trimming horse hooves. When you’re finished this course, you should be able to recognize the differences between healthy and unhealthy hooves and have a decent idea of how to get started on fixing problems as you’ll know why they are there and how they should be. We start gently with Lena, our oldenburg/draft horse, which is gentle as can be to be trimmed and move on next to Mr. Wilde, who is a feral horse just a few months off of a local range here in B.C. that we’ve rescued. Our last horse will be Gracie, our Arabian horse, that has had quite a few issues in her time with a great story to tell.
The initial release of this course (August 28, 2021) is set with an early bird price ($50) as all of the lessons aren’t online yet. As of Sept 4, 2021 there are 4 hours of videos to watch on three different horse’s trims with more lessons yet to be added! If you purchase at the early bird price you will receive all future updates to this course. The cost of the course will go up as more lessons are added which makes right now the best time to invest in an education here on hoof trimming!
In this lesson I say hello and talk about hoof trimming in general.
