Barefoot and Performance - A Reality
Barefoot Trim Clinic

Cindy "Hawk" Sullivan and her assistant Anne Coley (aka "Tree") will conduct a full day clinic at Horrell Hill Dressage Center. We will start with a lecture followed by dissection of a cadaver hoof - the dissection is very important so everyone can see what is inside the hoof, then we will do a couple of consults prior to lunch. Consults will be for people wanting an opinion about their horse, but not a trim. After lunch we will accept 6 horses for trimming.

The fee schedule is as follows:
Lecture and dissection only $ 25.00
Full day attendance $ 40.00
Trim $ 40.00
Consult for participant paying full attendance
(limited to two horses for entire clinic) free

Please sign up, as clinic will fill very fast. We will accept no more than 12 full attendance participants and 6 horses for trimming. Stabling is provided, you clean up your stall afterwards and provide your own hay/feed. Please bring your own lunch.
