Introducing the Hoofbeat Locomotion Analysis Training Program!

Do you want to gain valuable insights into the biomechanics of horse’s movement? Look no further!

Our comprehensive training program is specifically designed to provide you with a deep understanding of equine locomotion analysis, with the support of our revolutionary tool, Hoofbeat.

In Module 1: We will dive into the world of equine locomotion, exploring the function and biomechanics behind every stride. From the intricate movements of the limbs to the coordination of the entire body, you’ll gain a solid foundation of knowledge to make objective locomotion analysis.

In Module 2: We will unravel the biomechanics and significance of breakover—the critical moment when the hoof lifts off the ground. We’ll delve into the influence of trimming and shoeing on breakover, reinforcing your understanding of equine anatomy and its relation to various disorders that can affect this crucial phase of locomotion.

Module 3:  We will focus on swing phase—the period when the hoof is suspended in the air. You’ll explore the biomechanics of this dynamic movement and its connection to trimming, shoeing, and related disorders. By deepening your knowledge in this area, you’ll be equipped with the tools to optimize your horse’s stride and enhance overall performance.

Module 4Landing – We’ll uncover the biomechanics and significance of this phase, examining the impact of trimming and shoeing on landing. Through a thorough review of equine anatomy and associated disorders, you’ll develop a keen eye for detecting and addressing issues that may arise during landing.

Module 5We will bring it all together by exploring how Hoofbeat can be utilized to assess and analyze the function of the proximal locomotor system. You’ll discover how this revolutionary tool can aid in identifying and addressing neck and back problems, saddle fitting issues, and training imbalances. Gain the insights you need to optimize your horse’s performance and overall well-being.

In Module 6We will delve into the intriguing world of lameness and laterality. You’ll learn to recognize the subtle signs of lameness and understand the importance of laterality in equine locomotion analysis. Expand your diagnostic skills and become an expert in identifying and addressing potential lameness issues.

Completed with a final exam, and…:

Upon successfully completing the program, you will receive your Hoof Beat certification, a symbol of your dedication, proficiency, and commitment to the highest standards of hoofcare. This certification will not only enhance your professional credentials but also serve as a testament to your passion for promoting the health and soundness of horses.
