* Learning a new skill such as hoof trimming, where you are working with sometimes uncooperative live animals, is challenging in itself. Inferior tools only add an unnecessary level of difficulty and risk (for horses and humans) to the job. A liability waiver will be signed on the first day.

Clinics are intended for adults, but interested teens are welcome also.  You should have watched our hoof trimming DVD Discovering Your Horse's Natural Hooves - How to trim the barefoot horse before attending the clinic.  

To sign up: Use the donation link above and a space will be held for you in the clinic, and you will receive an email explaining what to expect when you arrive.    

The balance can be paid when you arrive and waiver forms will be signed at that time as well.   Minimum of 10 participants

Items to bring, bring what you have - not all are mandatory for the clinic: 
Apron
Hoof pick
Nippers - GE preferred 
Hoof knife - steel - not aluminum (see tools page also) 
Rasp (Heller Legend preferably or Save Edge)
Rasp handle (prefer the round aluminum ones - in stock here)
Wire brush, - (prefer plastic handle. Hobart is a good brand.) 
Marking pen
Hoof Jack Stand if you have one. If not, I have extras you can borrow while you're here, but if you’ll need one eventually.
a marking pen, paper for notes, and wear sturdy shoes and long pants.  (I know it’s common sense, but I’ve had to remind students in the past that shorts and sandals aren’t safe around horses. )
