Hoof Summit Offers Education for Horse Owners, Vets, and Techs

Featuring in-depth sessions on all aspects of equine footcare, the 6th annual International Hoof-Care Summit offers 76 hours of continuing education opportunities.

Being held from Feb. 3-6, 2009, in Cincinnati, Ohio, this sixth annual event will offer solid footcare answers from 49 outstanding farriers, equine veterinarians, and hoof researchers. While the audience is mainly hoof care professionals, the four-day Summit, hosted by the American Farriers Journal, will also appeal to horse owners wishing to learn much more about the equine foot.

Along with 74 in-depth general sessions, Hoof-Care Classrooms, and Hoof-Care Roundtables, the Summit includes a trade show with more than 90 exhibitors introducing their many new footcare products for 2009. The event is being held in the Duke Energy Center and the Hilton Hotel in downtown Cincinnati.
