HOOFCARETODAY.COM (RFDTV & Online Video Site)
HoofcareToday.com is a website that hosts a large number of informational and educational videos that have been featured on RFDTV (with Rick Lamb & Dennis Reis), as well as original content intended to support those programs.
From day one, we have preached about the importance of good hoof trimming and foot preparation as the key to ALL lameness treatment and performance improvment applications. These educational materials offer the basics and the foundation for that understanding, and improve your ability to maintain soundness in horses.
EDSS and Gene Ovnicek host many different types of clinics and workshops throughout the year. Live demonstrations, Powerpoint lectures and hands-on training are a key component to successful application of some of our products and we work hard to provide those opportunities.
