The Epona Institute is dedicated to the study of the hoof and equine biomechanics. Our clinics give participants a unique opportunity to learn how EponaShoe can help both horses and hoof care professionals reach their maximum performance potential. Our clinics earn credits for AAPF members.
We cover the Epona Method, including; hoof measurement, calibration, trimming, nailing, incorporating scientific techniques with X-Ray and cutting edge software into your shoeing regiment. We offer exclusive training and insider tips and tricks in the art of glueing for ultimate versatility. Hands-on training and individual attention to each clinic participant allows you to learn to customize EponaShoe for your own needs and incorporate EponaShoe with your own methods. We also demonstrate severe therapeutic cases & how to maximize your success with X-Ray, glue, packing material, and Epona Casting Hooks.
