Cost is $150
This webinar fulfills the Advanced Nutrition requirement for PHCP members and is open to the public.
Horse owners will commonly seek advice from their hoof care practitioner about the best approach to feeding their horses. It is vital that you can help with informed advice based on scientific evidence and common sense rather than fads or myths. This course is designed to complement Dr Eleanor Kellon’s NRC Plus and fulfills the Advanced Nutrition requirement for PHCP members.
