I highly recommend Daisy Haven Farm School of Integrative Hoof Care Online Course. I started with no experience in hoof trimming, I have owned horses for over 45 years and had previously relied on the expertise of local farriers. My search to understand why my horses were unable to maintain healthy hooves was my incentive for taking a hoof trimming course. Daisy Bicking's reputation as a hoof care provider, and teacher, as well her innovative and progressive approach to hoof rehabilitation was an important factor in considering her online course.
The online course is a complete trim course, affordable with the ability to make payments, and I could go through the lessons at my convenience. Daisy's online course introduced me to hoof trimming that encompassed current science and published research data as well as her own documented case studies. Daisy is a great speaker, conveying the information in a very clear and concise way; it was easy to translate her lessons into real world applications. The course is organized into modules with lessons that are formatted to help you make informed trim decisions as well as tool use and instruction.
In completing the course, I trim horses hooves with confidence. I can identify; pathologies, rotational deformaties, HPA, proficient in hoof mapping, understanding, analyzing and improving horse posture, documenting hoof, and trim progression, assess radiographs from a trimmers perspective and more. I was able to (take care of) three horses with metabolic issues in my own herd as well as a PPID horse with the vet. I trim horses for other owners as well. I am empowered as a horse owner and grateful I had the opportunity to take this course to help my own horses as well as others.
