'No foot, no horse!' FREE horse health seminar in Sydney

February 2015

Horses are under extra stress during the hot Australian summer months and providing proper hoof care will help to take the burden off their feet.

Equine veterinarian and Australia’s leading veterinary coach, Dr Diederik Gelderman, will run an equine hoof care seminar on February 15 at Centennial Vineyards in Bowral. The three-hour event includes a live horse demonstration and is free to the public.

“Ninety per cent of lameness in horses is hoof related. In summary – no foot, no horse!” says Dr Gelderman. “Every day horse vets see less than optimal shoeing and trimming; it’s the most common cause of poor performance.”

Also, most horse owners do not recognise when there is a problem because even very subtle changes to the hoof can cause major functional issues, he adds.

“Unfortunately, many farriers do not do a great job, and if horse owners don’t recognise poor workmanship and/or they are scared to say something to their farrier, their horse will suffer in the long run,” says Dr Gelderman.

The seminar will benefit anyone who owns, rides and/or works with horses, he adds.

‘Hoof Balance and Your Horse’ Seminar

The Hoof Balance and Your Horse Seminar will cover topics including but not limited to normal hoof and pastern structure and what is abnormal, what are the common shoeing and trimming mistakes that occur, and how to recognise and differentiate good and a bad job.

The event will include the use of digital radiography to show the effects of bad shoeing and trimming on how the bones align and function, plus demonstrate what occurs using LIVE x-ray images as he correctly trims/shoes a horse, and then reveals how the horse performs and moves better.

“The seminar will be a practical and hands-on workshop using real cases, live horses and real time x-rays to show how the internal structures of your horse’s hoof and pastern are affected by what’s done with the foot, and how simple and easy it can be to both positively and negatively affect your horse’s hoof balance and performance with good and bad trimming and shoeing techniques,” says Dr Gelderman.

For more information or to register, phone 0488 344 420 or email michele@turbochargeyourpractice.com. Strictly limited attendance!
