Private Trimming Lessons
Lesson Cost is $100 per hour, per person, plus applicable taxes
(a prerequisite is our Online Hoof Anatomy, Theory and Barefoot Trimming Course, sold separately)
These comprehensive private lessons will give you the skills needed to confidently assess and evaluate a horse's hoof care needs and trim to achieve natural hoof mechanics and function based on each horse's individual conformation and hoof shape. A private lesson is ideal for someone who is already trimming their own horses that just wants to make sure they are headed in the right direction. They can also be a stepping point for those interested in trimming as a professional. All lessons include follow-up telephone and email consultations and advice, and we have a Facebook group for students to share pictures, ask for advice and get help. A prerequisite to all private lessons is our Online Hoof Theory Course.
I understand that taking a week off of work to take the 6 day course isn't always feasible and this is where this private option can be a good choice. Customize the lessons to fit around your schedule and perhaps even split it up to cover a couple of weekends or holidays so that you don't have to take time off of work. Private lessons differ from the 6 day course as you are learning in a one on one setting at your own farm with your own horses (travel fees may apply), and lessons do not include tool kits or the massage therapist guest lecture (tools may be purchased at an additional cost).
The lesson structure will depend on the students experience level, and can be customized to the individuals needs.
Whatever type of trimming course, clinic or lesson you can dream up, we can accommodate.
Please contact us to discuss your needs and scheduling options. Private lessons at your farm can be scheduled easier throughout our course season then on campus lessons. Availability April-October is limited as the school horses are being trimmed in 4-6 week rotations already to accommodate the 6 day course schedule. View that schedule here.
