Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners

When I made the decision to pursue a career in hoof care, I initially explored traditional farrier schools. While I was enthusiastic about starting my studies, the prospect of spending considerable time on shoe-related aspects, which didn't align with my preferences, left me wondering if that was a good fit for me in the long run.  I knew I wanted to specialize in barefoot hoof trimming, focus on the health of the whole horse, and maintain a continuous learning journey throughout my career. PHCP turned out to be exactly what I had been searching for.

So, what exactly is PHCP?

"Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a supportive network and educational foundation for hoof care professionals and horse owners based on a holistic and progressive approach to equine hoof care... Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners has developed a solid training program based on non invasive trimming methods and the latest research in hoof health. The PHCP Chat group provides a forum where students and practitioners can ask questions and share information on any topic pertaining to equine health and well being. Continuing education and professional growth is at the heart of the PHCP organization. Exploration of new ideas and approaches to holistic hoof care are strongly encouraged."
