Performance Hoof Workshops - new dates

As you may know, I've been trying something new this summer - workshops for owners and horses all about hooves. 

They've been lots of fun to run and I'm delighted that the feedback from those attending has been really positive so far.

They usually run for one day and we look at around 6 different horses, filming them and looking at their movement in slow motion on various surfaces. We assess how the horse is moving, where his strengths and weaknesses are and whether there are ways to improve how his feet are landing and loading, overall foot balance and movement in hand and under saddle.

As well as taking footage of each horse and looking at them individually we talk about nutrition and environment and how they can affect feet. We also look at practical ways to make simple, cos-effective changes which can improve yards and fields for every horse.

There will be new workshops on the days below and there are currently spaces available so if you are interested in booking please email me: nic@rockleyfarm.co.uk

Costs are £40 for a spectator and £80 if you are bringing your horse, each day runs from 10am-4pm.

Friday 14th September                  Rockley Farm, Brayford, EX32 7QR

I'd love to spectate at a workshop in California (southern), Arizona, Nevada, or Utah.
