Equine Bodywork Training for Hoof Care Professionals
Affiliated Bodywork Hoofcare Professionals
Co-instructed by Dino Fretterd (Dino's B.E.S.T., Inc.) and Randy DeBord (Hoof Savvy)
The purpose of this clinic is to share knowledge with individuals who have experience and a comfort with working with the legs and feet of the horse. True knowledge can be attained only through understanding and application.
As a hoof care professional you certainly understand muscle/tendon tension and the effects that it has on the feet. It causes the horse to adopt different postures which then results in a weight bearing/distribution issue which you see in growth patterns. Bodywork Professionals are welcome to attend this clinic as well, it is not only for Hoofcare Professionals.
The instruction will include:
The effectiveness of the techniques that will be taught will help you as a hoof care provider achieve the trim you would like without overstressing the soft tissue and compromising the horse. Additional benefits of stretching techniques allows you to work with a more relaxed horse. Anatomy will be discussed as it pertains to balance and function. This is a class where egos are left at the door and open discussion as to serving the horse with justice is paramount.
The 2-day clinic will be held at a dude/guest ranch or, you may host a clinic. (Inquire about benefits to Host). Shoes would be removed by or under knowledge of ranch professional and discussion would be held as to what could be done to improve the balance of the horse. The techniques described above will improve range of joint movement and elasticity of soft tissue which would result in allowing you to balance the hoof more effectively.
“I’ve said many times...if I had a magic lamp instead of a genie I wish I could have a hoof care professional appear.”

As a professional
Farrier for the last 20 years, I have been around horses a lot. Throughout the

I became interested in equine neuromuscular dentistry and bodyworks.
