Equine practitioners are regularly exposed to various and sometimes contradicting opinions on farriery and especially on therapeutic shoeing. The fact that new graduates go into practice with minimal training in farriery and shoeing only exacerbates the problem and leaves practitioners grappling with this contentious subject.

This practical course approaches the subject in a scientific and as objective way as possible by reporting established and recent, cutting-edge facts from scientifically sound clinical studies and aims to equip equine practitioners to have meaningful and informed discussions with their farriers.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Foot Lameness & Farriery':
