The Hoofcare Essentials Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization based in West Palm Beach, Florida, plans to host a unique hands-on experience that will allow farriers and veterinarians to work in small teams to view horses in a mock “Prepurchase Analysis and Shoeing of the Sport Horse.”

The event will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center, 7500 Forest Hill Blvd, in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The schedule will allow the teams to watch horses move at a walk and then a jog. The veterinarian will then take hoof radiographs of each horse. The teams will then meet to determine a shoeing prescription for the respective horse. Following the shoeing, horses will again be presented at a walk and jog. Finally, teams will present and discuss their findings and actions with the entire group.

The Foundation is currently seeking applications for horses to be used in this event.  Ideally, they are seeking 10-12 horses. Each team will include four (4) farriers working with a veterinarian and/or veterinarian technicians. 

To nominate a horse, horse owners and their representatives should complete the nomination form by visiting HoofcareEssentials.com. These horse owners and/or representatives will be encouraged to audit the event and discuss the farrier’s findings with the respective team.

The Foundation is also accepting applications from farriers. They may nominate themselves or teams of two, three, or four farriers. A nomination form can also be found on the home page of the Foundation’s website, www.HoofcareEssentials.com. For additional information contact Bryan Quinsey at 561/914-8278 or HoofcareEssentials@gmail.com.

A flyer with additional details can also be found on the Foundation’s website.
