Gateway to Natural Hoof Care Clinic
The Ohio State University Agricultural Technology Institute, Wooster, OH
9:00 am Monday, June 1 through 3:00 pm Friday, June 5, 2020.
The “Gateway Clinic” is the foundation of our Hoof Care Training Programs. It is where the road to a professional hoof care career and certification begins. But it is also a very valuable clinic for non-professionals. Participants receive hands-on, supervised instruction that prepares them to successfully trim their own horse or evaluate the work of their professional trimmer. In addition, it is a perfect venue for enlightened individuals seeking authentic information about factors that affect hoof health and the mental and physical wellbeing of horses.
Cadaver hooves are used during the clinic, so, participants can focus on learning to trim without the worry of handling a horse. This also allows participants to become proficient trimmers without putting a live horse’s hooves at risk.
