Like always this time of year, when the leaves are turning and the ride season winds down in the Mountain Region, Europe is calling.
I shall again travel to Europe in the middle of the month to conduct several hoof care clinics, demonstrating hoof trimming techniques and showing folks the most proficient way to apply various models of Easyboots and EasyShoes. We will glue, nail, tape, adjust, fit all the different shoes and boots of EasyCare product list. Specifically, I will travel to Germany, who won this years Soccer World Championship in Brazil and Switzerland.
What is this sole thickening in front of the tip of the frog? Leave it or remove it? Why is it there in the first place? We will discuss this and much more during these clinics.
Nailing the EasyShoe Performance N/G is part of all the clinics now. There is a strong desire out there to learn nailing these shoes.
Do not get me wrong, I will promote and demonstrate EasyCare products, but I'm also very open to all kind of hoof protection on the market. After all, we are always after the most suitable products under any given circumstances and needs for our horses. During these clinics, I have used and applied all kind of hoof protection of all kind of companies. After all, if you do not try them all, how will you know who is the best and which product will fit a particular horse the best?
Explaining to the audience before demonstrations begin.
Participants always get ample opportunities to trim hooves and apply various hoof protection products themselves. That is indeed the preferred way to learn.
In the middle of October, I will hold the first seminar close to Muenchen, or Munich, how many Anglos like to spell the name of this jewel of the Bavarian Capital. The seminar is organized by Bianca Schiffer, a NHC Trimmer in Bavaria. If interested, you may visit her website at: http://www.keep-it-natural.org/
The weekend after I will travel to Zurich, Switzerland. There, Franziska Bauman is the onsite organizer of the second Seminar, where we will focus mainly on application of the various EasyShoes. You may still be able to join in on that one, there might be a couple of spots available. Contact Franziska Bauman via Facebook or by clicking on her name. Rounding out the program at the end is a private follow-up clinic close to Munich on the first weekend in November.
Any of my European blog followers, if you are interested in these learning opportunities, you may email me privately or message me on Facebook. You could possibly still attend.
At the end of November, the F-Balance clinic will be taking place at Global Endurance Training Center in Moab, Utah. I had written a blog about this upcoming F-Balance Clinic in my August blog. You can read up on this by clicking on the highlighted link. This Clinic will happen on November 28th - 30th at GETC in Moab, Utah. The investment fee of $1,500 includes 4 nights of lodging, breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as F-Balance Certification. Class description available at F-Balance website. It is very worthwhile to also visit F-Balance website to learn more about this trimming method, developed and taught by Daniel Anz.
This clinic will expand your horizons tremendously. Daniel has taught his trimming methods all over Europe and South America. He is a real authority and icon in his native Argentina. The Clinic is hosted by Global Endurance Center in Moab, Utah. We are all looking forward having Daniel here in North America for the very first time to teach us about his research and findings.
Please sign up as soon as possible, we have to limit the participants numbers to 10. You may also email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org or through a Facebook message.
Hope to see many of you at these events.
