"Trimming with Nancy Filbert CSHS"

Nancy Filbert was one of the first Certified Strasser Hoof Care Specialists in the United States. She had the benefit of studying at Dr. Strasser's Hoof Clinic in Germany and is a devoted Trim Specialist. Nancy also has incredible teaching abilities and makes the trim process much more transparent. Join us Friday for the basics and Saturday for "hands-on" trim experiences (you must participate in Friday's session to bring a horse on Saturday). Bring your tools and an open mind.
