Latest news from iaep


New for the coming year will be the introduction of Specialty Workshops aimed at providing education in Founder, EDO, and NPAS. These workshops are open to all and will hopefully increase the number of people that can quickly and responsibly respond to the needs of horses stricken with Founder, Equine Digital Osteoarthritis or Negative Palmar Angle Syndrome (under-run low heels). We have added a page to our website that will list professional trimmers and farriers that have attended one these workshops. They may or may not be graduates of the Institute, but at a minimum they will be well versed in how to address the horse suffering these devastating disorders. We of course highly recommend that you seek out a graduate of our Advanced Level Podiatry Program, but if one is not available in your area this list of care providers is your next best option for finding someone that is progressive and pro-active in their learning. ​​


We have arranged for our followers to receive a 20% discount on Holistic Animals Kinesiology Taping Certification Course.
