Date 
Nov. 15-16, 2019

Location 
Tennessee Equine Hospital, 1508 Thompson's Station Road West, Thompson's Station, Tennessee, USA 37179

Description 
This 2-day practical course approaches the subject of farriery and therapeutic shoeing in a scientific and as objective way as possible by reporting established facts and recent, cutting-edge findings from scientifically sound clinical studies. The anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the foot will be covered, followed by lectures on trimming, shoeing, different shoe types and what effect they have on the foot, how to examine the foot and how to deal with specific foot problems. The 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 vets per specimen) and to discuss all aspects of foot trimming, shoeing and general farriery with the specialists.
