  2. Attendee's bring their flashdrives, CD or pictures of the feet they are interested in evaluating.   Depending on the location we will go out after lunch and show how to apply the method learned over the weekend.

Optional: Hosting clinics:  if available but not necessary, is to have some horses for people to practice getting the concept.   

Optional: There isn't enough time in the two and half day clinic to have people trimming live feet at the end of the 2nd full day.  A 3rd full day clinic (for those that attended the previous days) you will be supervised to trim your horse. Cost for this additional day is $100.

Evaluations with your horse would be done on Sunday or last day of clinic.
