WHOLE HORSE PROTOCOL EDUCATIONAL COURSES
The Whole Horse Protocol consists of many tributaries that form one great healthy river. They are designed for the owner who wants more understanding of how the hoof functions, nutrition to maintain healthy hooves (and of course horse), up to the person who wants to gain the knowledge and experience in order to be a professional hoof trimmer and make a career of this fast-growing area of natural horse husbandry. Each level is a stand-alone module, or can form part of a continuing education program to take a person on to becoming a dedicated professional. Though completion of all 4 levels is not the end, nor a given - a minimum standard must be obtained. Unlike many academy´s or clinics, once you become one of our registered professionals, practicing The Whole Horse Protocol, you will be kept constantly updated on new science or products relevant to our profession. You learn from the most current information available. You will also be informed of any courses that would be beneficial to maintain the service you provide your clients as the most current and up-to-date in the equestrian world. Science and manufacturing is constantly improving. Field studies are constantly showing us new things.
All theory material is included in the cost of each course. Studying with a professional, alongside other students, imparts learning through discovery and not by rote, assuring a true understanding of the subjects, along with an ability to think outside the box. This is important. We work with live creatures who do not communicate as we do. They can not tell us exactly what hurts, where and we must be able to see them for the individual each one is.

All previous students who have completed Level 1 or above will honoured should they wish to further their education with either just Level 2, or 3 and 4. Personalised arrangements will be made for this.
Remember Levels 1 & 2 can be completed back-to-back. New students are recommended to do so, should they want to further their careers in this profession.
