|About||The Bare Hoof School is an equine hoof trimming school.|
|Mission||To educate the next generation of barefoot farriers and spread the word of natural hoof care.|
We are entering a new paradigm in the way we care for and train our horses. In this new arena we are creating a dynamic and holistic discipline of equine management, literally from the ground up.
The Bare Hoof School offers its students the highest quality of education in Equine Hoof Care and Management. We train our students according to the most up to date standards and techniques for natural hoof care. Our students learn both safe tool use and horse handling techniques; and how to set up and run a small hoof trimming business. Basic bio-dynamic equine care, a holistic discipline which seeks to respect and mimic the horses’ natural wild setting, is a part of the curriculum. Nutrition, environment, handling, and training, are viewed through this lens. The basics of body work, flower essences, herbs, tinctures, homeopathy, and other practices are also discussed. Students are taught by an instructor who not only is a professional in the field of equine hoof care and maintenance, but who has extensive experience training and riding horses. Guest lecturers are common and students participate in hands-on field trips to horse rescue facilities and clinics .
We are currently seeing exciting changes in the way we think about horse care. This is the next big step in providing the highest quality of life for our equine friends and companions. So come, join up in being one of the leaders!
