We are entering a new paradigm in the way we care for and train our horses. In this new arena we are creating a dynamic and holistic discipline of equine management, literally from the ground up.


The Bare Hoof Trimming School offers its students the highest quality education in Equine Hoof Care and Management. We train our students according to the most up to date standards and techniques of natural hoof care. Our students learn both safe tool use and horse handling techniques and how to set up and run a small hoof trimming business. Basic bio-dynamic equine care, a holistic discipline which seeks to respect and mimic the horse’s natural setting in the wild is a part of the curriculum. Nutrition, environment, handling, and training, are all viewed through this lens. The basics of body work, herbs, tinctures, homeopathy, and other alternative practices are also discussed. Students are taught by an instructor who not only is a professional in the field of equine hoof care and maintenance, but one who has extensive experience training and riding horses. Guest lecturers are common and students participate in hands-on field trips to horse rescue facilities and clinics. Rendezvous Ranch is proud to offer new clinics for 2015. Go to our course offerings and take a look at some of the new and exciting programs we have to offer.

We are currently witnessing exciting changes in the way we think about horse care. This is the next big step in providing the highest quality of life for our equine friends and companions. So come, join up in being one of the leaders!
