Level 2 Course

As part of our education commitment, Sabots Libres currently offers two courses. They differ principally on entry level with the Level 1 course being aimed at both the private owner and professionals with restricted knowledge of the actual daily requirements of the horse and the role that barefoot has to play, and with little or no experience of trimming hooves.

Level 2 is aimed at those owners and professionals with the knowledge provided by the Level 1 course, who have a clear understanding of the daily requirements of the horse and are reasonably proficient – or at least practiced – in trimming hooves.

The Level 2 course consists of:

Day 1 – Theory
The daily life of the horse expanded
Further locomotion
Detailed mechanics of the hoof
Review of hoof hygiene and maintenance

Day 2 – Practical
Trimming – evaluation of students development trimming
