This class is geared toward the horse owner that would like to trim their own horses, but doesn't know where to start. It is also the first class after the Exploring the Equine Hoof to take toward getting a Certificate of completion. Classes begin at 9am and end around 5pm usually later. Each class will cover the instructor trimming a cadaver hoof step by step. Explaining the hoof structure and the parts of the hoof. After the instructor is done trimming each part of the hoof, each student will trim their hoof. Students are encouraged to take before and after pictures of their hooves, to compare the finished product to their starting hoof. After the trim we will break for lunch. After lunch we will begin dissecting a hoof. Each structure will be observed and it's purpose will be discussed. Classes are kept small for maximum learning.
