Description

Join Lindsay Setchell & the HM Team

Take your HOOF knowledge to the next LEVEL by learning about the Natural Trim from experienced BAREFOOT specialists.

Let them guide you over the course of 3 days on how to achieve optimum health for your horse and their hooves, through diet, management and trimming.

By the end of the 3 days you’ll have a firm understanding of the anatomy of the lower leg and hoof, what is meant by a species specific diet, how best to manage your horse and to be competent enough to maintain your own horse’s hooves by implementing a Natural Trim.

Learn from the BAREFOOT SPECIALISTS

Lindsay Setchell BSc (Hons), PGCE, AANHCP

The Barefoot Horse Magazine founder & editor and founder of renowned UK Barefoot hoofcare specialists Hoofing Marvellous.

After graduating from University with a BSc Hons, Lindsay took a Post Graduate Certificate of Education and began teaching Science in further education colleges and secondary schools.

After nearly losing her beloved pony Sunny to laminitis, Lindsay decided to change career and travelled to the US to train with the famous and influential barefoot teacher, author and expert Jaime Jackson, to become a qualified Natural Hoofcare Practitioner.

She then continued her training throughout Europe, until bringing her expertise back to the UK to start her own barefoot hoofcare business.

Realising that there was a huge need for barefoot specialists throughout the UK, Lindsay went on to found Hoofing Marvellous, which rapidly grew into a team of 6 qualifed Barefoot Specialists covering the South and South West of the UK.

Lindsay and the Hoofing Marvellous team, tour with their 3 day workshops bringing the knowledge of natural horse and hoof care to horse owners and professionals, as well as teaching and mentoring budding barefoot trimmers.
