About The Event
No foot, no horse!
This course is ideal for the conscientious horse owner, student or professional who would like to learn more about caring for horses holistically, with a focus on hooves for soundness and high performance from the foot up. Do not be fooled by the title "Intro Level" as this is a detailed and comprehensive introduction to holistic hoof care! Do you have a laminitis prone horse or want to be proactive in keeping your horse sound and happy? This is just the day for you!
Beccy has over 25 years industry experience and will share with you valuable nuggests of information in an intensive, practical, hands on course at her yard at Holistic Reflections HQ on the fringe of the Lake District near Egremont. Learn more about Beccy here.
The course is a mix of lectures and workshop practicals and all participants will get an opportunity to try out what they learn in the classroom on the Circle Healing Centre horses at Yewcroft.
