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. Lessons include access to our 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 a private option can be a good choice. 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 (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.
Now offering virtual trimming lessons!
The world as we know it is getting a lot smaller! With the advancement of video conferencing tools we are now offering our private lessons virtually! You can set up your phone and we can live chat while you trim and I can look over your work and give feedback. We can brainstorm trimming techniques specific to your horse and come up with a long term plan. Lessons are tailored to your specific needs and include follow up support via email and our Facebook group. Virtual lessons can be done via Zoom, Facetime or another video conferencing application.
