Our graduates do not represent themselves as medical professionals, but rather as Applied Equine Podiatrists who apply the theories and principles of Applied Equine Podiatry. Each graduate follows guidelines set forth in the Institute's Declaration of Ethics . We are confident that you will find their work to be beyond reproach. Their skill and knowledge of the equine foot is extensive. They do not in any way make claim to diagnosing, or treating diseases of the equine foot, they do and will, under the authority of an attending veterinarian, provide the highest level of care possible for your horse. Hoof Care requires a team effort, and that team should include the Owner, Veterinarian, and an Active DAEP.
