Horse Shoeing Informational Clinic 2 of 6 - -

Saturday, June 14, 2008

Ron Marshall is an invaluable asset to the equine industry. Not only is he extending the lives and comfort of numerous equines ailed with such hoof- related diseases as laminitis, founder, and navicular, but he is also sharing his extensive knowledge, experience, and expertise with others to help raise awareness about these debilitating diseases. The proper care and health of the hooves is overlooked and neglected by many equine owners. Consequently, our farriers are often given the burdens of responsibility and blame. Yet keeping an equine's hooves healthy and sound requires more than regularly scheduled trims and/or shoeings. There is an undeniable truth to saying "no hoof, no horse," and, sadly, many of us are lacking in our knowledge on this subject.
Ron's passion for his profession, with his dedication to the prevention and treatment of hoof-related diseases, has brought us a much needed recourse and opportunity to better educate ourselves in this area. Ron's clinics are extremely informative. He believes in the team approach which combines the education, expertise, and communication of the veterinarian, farrier, and equine owner. His clinics include expert speakers from various fields, including veterinarian medicine, nutrition, alternative barefoot shoeing methods, and more. Detailed illustrations, explanations, and case studies are presented at his clinics to help participants better understand these diseases, their prevention and treatment, and the latest techniques in therapeutic care. I highly recommend Ron's clinics to every horseman and horsewoman out there. The investment of time and costs is minimal for the return of knowledge these clinics guarantee.

Thank you, Ron, for having the desire and perseverance to make a difference in the lives of our beloved equines, and for sharing with us your wealth of experience and knowledge.

Sincerely,
Jodi K Dove
