"This is the second-level course in my Online Hoof Care Education Series for horse owners; students are eligible to enroll after completing the foundational Heart Hoof Care Online Course. I designed this course for students interested in learning more about the trimming process and how the knowledge in the foundational course can be used to guide the trimming process to ensure the trim results in a hoof capsule matching the internal structures. It's the perfect place to start for horse owners considering trimming their own horses." - Jamie Stevenson
