Dr. Redden's Equine Podiatry 101 Course (June 10-14, 2013)
June 10-14, 2013
After numerous requests, Dr. Redden will be hosting his Equine Podiatry 101 Course June 10-14, 2013. This 5 day course offers veterinarians, farriers and horsemen the opportunity to learn the basic mechanical principles of equine podiatry. Dr. Redden's unique teaching style paves the way for farrier and vet teams to learn the power of radiographic information as it relates to their respective roles and how to use that information in a collaborative team effort. This new information unlocks limitless options that can greatly enhance the healing environment, helping you achieve your client's goals with a large variety of foot problems.
Each day will be divided into two sessions. During the morning sessions, Dr. Redden will teach and demonstrate basic podiatry principles and techniques as they relate to a variety of common foot problems. Afternoon sessions will include hands-on instruction designed to enhance the knowledge and working relationship of two mutual professions that are held equally responsible for the health of the equine foot. Veterinarians and farriers who study together, work together.
When veterinarians and farriers learn together they enhance their effectiveness when working together.
