Does Your Horse Have Funky Feet? Natural Hoof Seminar in Wisconsin

My old eventer Ping has always has lousy Thoroughbred feet.  Soft, thin soles and little or no hoof wall -- that's the story of Ping.  I have supplemented, painted, lamented, epoxy-ed, booted,  and worried over this horses feet for years.  I have written stories about his feet and lost many a nights sleep.  The Natural Hoof was always so tempting but I could never stand how uncomfortable Ping was when we pulled his shoes. I inevitably back-slid to replacing his shoes - and was rewarded with a big grateful ground-covering trot from the old redhead.  Now that Ping is retired, his shoes are glued on.  More expensive, but definitely more comfortable for him and a lot less worry and fewer sleepless nights for the humans in his life.

If you've always wondered if the natural hoof could work for your horse, perhaps this two-day Natural Hoof and Horse Care Clinic is for you.  Read on and may the equine hoof gods be with you.  They never were with me, but you just might have better luck - ed
