“Where Footcare Comes First,” the 2019 International Hoof-Care Summit theme, summarizes the reason farriers and veterinarians travel to Cincinnati, Ohio, every year: to gain new and valuable ideas for improving equine hoof care.

  • 15 Practical Hoof-Care Classrooms - Intensive, in-depth discussion sessions that allow you to ask and answer questions with your fellow hoof-care professionals.
  • 24 Interactive Hoof-Care Roundtables - Exchange the latest ideas and proven footcare strategies with your peers in a small group setting. Find answers to your most pressing footcare concerns.

  • 3 High-Energy Trade Show Sessions - Experience more than 180 booths and 130 exhibitors during 10 uninterrupted hours at the largest gathering of hoof-care product exhibitors in the world. Interact with suppliers and manufacturers, watch how-to demonstrations and explore fresh ideas to increase your effectiveness and efficiency. If a hoof-care product exists, it’s likely you’ll find it at the 2019 Summit.
