‘No Foot No Problem?’

Imprint Equine Foot Care continues to lead the way in progressive farriery since 2000.

The elements within this course are divided into knowledge, anatomy, physiology and pathology followed by a practical demonstration, usually on a live case, of one of the techniques developed for treating that particular condition. This covers the morning sessions and then throughout the afternoon the students receive intensive hands-on practical tuition. The focus is related to understanding the causes and effects of the condition and effective and simple resolution restoring structure and function to the hoof and whole foot. Our objective is to impart new knowledge, pass on practical skills that can be repeated methodically to achieve consistent results. The student will then be equipped with confidence to perform consistently well whether in an exam setting or in their daily work.
The above can be achieved using the range of Imprint Foot Care products whether hoof repair, foal development or various shoeing applications.
