Welcome to the Hoofcare Essentials Foundation

THE EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS & PATRONS OF THE HOOFCARE ESSENTIALS FOUNDATION INVITE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS TO JOIN US FOR A UNIQUE HOOFCARE ESSENTIALS CLINIC ON SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2024

At Jim Brandon Equestrian Center, 7500 Forest Hill Blvd, West Palm Beach, Florida

"Farrier / Veterinarian Pre-Purchase Analysis and Shoeing of the Sport Horse"

This unique hands-on experience will allow farriers to work in teams of a maximum of 4 farriers to view horses at a walk and jog, and review radiographs and further analysis of the needs of the horse.  There is NO CHARGE to attend or participate in this clinic.  Pre-registration is required to ensure an adequate number of horses.  

Following the analysis the farrier team will work with a veterinarian to develop a shoeing prescription for the horse.  The team will then shoe the horse (all four feet).  Afterwards the team will present its evaluation to the entire group with a full conclusion of the steps taken for this horse.

We are planning for 10 – 12 horses which will engage 40 – 48 farriers.

Farriers are encouraged to register themselves, teams of two (which will be combined with other teams of two), or a full team of 4 farriers.
