Excitingly, Sarah and I have been asked to do a 2 day seminar on barefoot horses in Poland! Its at the end of March and it coincides with another exciting development - a Polish edition of "Feet First" (there is ongoing discussion about what it will be called in Polish which is mostly over my head!).
This week I started to put together a skeleton outline of the topics we would cover on the 2 days, and I thought it would be really helpful to get input from you guys about what we should include.
Obviously there will be lots of detailed information about the "holy trinity" for performance hooves - nutrition, environment and exercise - and I'd also like to include a session on biomechanics and rehabilitation, as I think its something many people find interesting.
Unfortunately I don't think people will be able to bring their own horses but we should be able to include some individual case studies by using video and photos. We will also include some examples of horses who already have high performance hooves and compete or work in different disciplines.
Basically, I am looking for any and all ideas and suggestions - we have 2 days devoted to horses and hooves and we need to make the best possible use of it :-)
PS: Guess what - its still raining...Fog has gone, which is a help, but now we have gale force winds. Oh deep joy.
