Gateway To Hoof Care

For The 21st Century

The “Gateway Clinic” is the foundation for our Hoof Care Certification Programs. It is also a perfect program for: 1) horse owners who want to trim their own horses; horse owners who want to knowledgeably evaluate the condition of their horse’s hooves and the work of their professional trimmer; and 3) for those who want to evaluate the possibility of a career in hoof care.

For additional information contact Ann Corso, Director of our Barefoot Initiative, or 606-224-0466.

Here’s the tentative plan for the 2018 Gateway Clinic:

When: Monday, June 4 through Friday June 8, 2018.

Where: Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute, Wooster, Ohio. The venue is convenient to the Akron or Cleveland airports. We offer free shuttle service to and from the airport.

Housing: Free campus housing or stay in a local hotel that is within walking distance of the clinic.

Lunches: Free lunches catered by the OSU chef.

Instructors: Ann Corso, Master Hoof Care Professional, Director of LH Barefoot Initiative; Professor Steve Hebrock (aka Enlightened Equine), Master Hoof Care Professional, Certified Booting Specialist; Dr. Bruce Nock, MS, PhD.

Registration: Registration will open after the New Year. Then, just go to our registration page and pay the tuition in full or partly to reserve a spot in the clinic. Total fee for 2017 was US$ 1,975.00* and we anticipate that it will not change in 2018.

Download The Gateway Clinic Schedule For June 2017. It will be similar in 2018.

*Refunds are granted up to 30 days prior to an event. A $30 processing fee plus any PayPal fee will be deducted from each refund. No refunds will be granted within 30 days of the event, although the funds may be applied to a future Clinic.
