Event Description

Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners hosts Part 2 of "The Smart Way to Feed Horses" webinar. This two-part webinar series is an introduction to equine nutrition in practical terms and compliments Dr. Eleanor Kellon’s NRC Plus course. Carol Layton, B.Sc, M.Ed, an independent nutritionist is the presenter.

Part 2, "Laminitis and Myths," will be at 4 p.m. (Mountain Time) May 21. Some horses have a life-threatening, metabolic condition that causes insulin to rise, triggering the chain of events that result in laminitis. Laminitis will be explained along with causes including the most common dietary cause, insulin resistance. The aim of the presentation is to educate hoof practitioners so that they can support the owners of these horses and ponies by first explaining what the best and safest feeds are and what the key nutrients are to aid in rehabilitation plus horse management practices. The presentation will cover some related health issues including PPID and look at a number of common myths that confuse horse owners.

The cost is $65 for members, $110 for non-members. Register by visiting
