As a hoof care professional you certainly understand muscle/tension and the effects that it has on the feet. It causes the horse to adopt different postures which then results in a weight bearing/distribution issue which you can see in growth patterns. The purpose of this class is to instruct individuals who have experience and a comfort with working with a horses legs and feet.
The effectiveness of the techniques that will be taught will help you as a hoof care provider achieve the trim you would like without overstressing the soft tissue and compromising the horse. Additional benefits of stretching techniques allows you to work with a more relaxed horse and safer work environment. Anatomy will be discussed as it pertains to balance and function. This is a class where egos are left at the door and open discussion as to serving the horse with justice is paramount!
The 2-day class will be held at a dude/guest ranch where the ranch hoof care provider will be in attendance/participation. Shoes would be removed by or under knowledge of ranch professional and group discussion would be held as to what could be done to improve the balance of each individual horse. Trimming and re-shoeing would be performed by or under knowledge of the ranch professional. The techniques described above will improve range of joint movement and elasticity of soft tissue which would result in allowing you to balance the hoof more effectively. This is possible simply because you have balanced his body and changed posture and weight bearing. Dino has often said ..."if I had a magic lamp , instead of a genie I wish I could have a hoof care professional appear."
The purpose of this course is to share knowledge with individuals who have experience and a comfort with working with legs and hooves of the horse. True Knowledge can be attained only through understanding and application. The action of is Wisdom!
