AAEP Announces Program Devoted to Equine Hoof Care during 56th Annual Convention

8 April 2010 | Fran Jurga's Hoof Blog at

Equine veterinarians and farriers are urged to “save the date” for a full-day program dedicated to advanced hoof care techniques during the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ 56th Annual Convention, December 4 – 8, 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Held the final day of the world’s largest equine veterinary meeting, the program will explore the principles and application of good farriery along with innovative methods for treating equine foot problems. Attendees will gain applicable knowledge to improve their ability to provide dependable shoeing techniques and comprehensive hoof care services to patients. Topics include:

· Examining the equine foot
· Approaches to shoeing both the sport horse and the racehorse
· Farriery by application rather than farriery by product
· Glue-on technology
· Hoof cracks and wall defects
· Farriery for palmar hoof pain

The 56th Annual Convention will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center. With more than 100 available CE hours and a trade show with nearly 400 exhibitors, the convention provides the AAEP’s most comprehensive education experience. More details about the convention and registration will be announced closer to the event. Visit for more information.
