Maximum herd health
for minimum Effort…
The Healthy Horse: Feeding and Nutrition
A short course to help you understand your individual horse's needs and choose a management system that suits your environment, benefits the whole herd, and simplifies your life.
Access Now For A One-Time Payment Of Just £22
You know how important your horse’s environment is to their health and well being...
But there’s so many management options!
so much conflicting advice!
and each system seems prohibitively expensive, or impossible to implement
Because whether you have just one horse on a livery yard, or a whole herd to manage, this might sound like you some days…
You’re overwhelmed trying to make sure the horse's needs are met...
but in spite of your heroic efforts you’re never really sure you’re getting it right because you’ve heard so much conflicting advice.
While you love your time with horses you’re so busy with all the chores, you never have enough time for the really fun bits.
You get some great advice, and follow it to the letter, only to be told by the next person that it’s all wrong and you should be doing it differently
It’s not that any system is wrong or right
It’s about whether they’re right FOR YOU!
For your horse as an individual, your yard’s specific facilities, your herd as a whole and let me say it again…
YOU! You’re the one holding all this together!

About the Tutor
Hi! I'm Debs Crosoer. I’m a practicing Equine Podiatrist with over 15 years experience, author and educator. My focus is on helping people who want wildly effective horse keeping methods, without the usual stress and complication.
Who is this course for?
This course is for you if:
This course is NOT for you if:
So... How does this work then?
This is a mini course. You'll get instant access to all 3 modules.
You'll have lifetime access to all the content, so you can work at your own pace. Binge it all in 1 go, or take a more sedate pace, it's up to you.
Each module will have video lessons, with supporting docs like worksheets, pdfs and further resources.
Access is through this membership site.
There's a live Zoom Q&A session each month.
Well, technically it's all done at home, but there are no assignments to complete, or grades given.
I will be updating the course over time. You'll have access to the new content too.
Difficulty level ?
This course is aimed at horse owners. All the basics will be covered. I try to make everything easy to understand.
We have a monthly Zoom meeting where you can get your questions answered.
There's discussions and support in the facebook group, and a comments section below each lesson in the Academy.
I'm not sure if that's morbid or not! Lets not worry about our mortality :)
Lifetime access means for the lifetime of Hoof Geek Academy.
What People Are Saying...
I have a deeper understanding of what is happening with my ponies and how to support them through what has been a tough year. Good to have found sound advice and support as sometimes the vets seem to be a little dated in their solutions. Thank you Debs you've given me hope.
Worth the Investment
So many courses, so little time (and money?). But this one was well worth it. Whether or not you are concerned your horse's laminitis risk is high, this course provides many "aha" insights. It also offered a number of facts I had never heard or read before but which filled in little gaps in my understanding. Debs' approach is straight forward and she is very responsive to questions and specific concerns.
I’d recommend the course to every single horse owner
My number 1 concern was how to keep 17hh of horse from having tummy issues, which caused his feet to flare and lose all semblance of heel and concavity. That pretty much remains my concern, except I now have a better plan.
What happens next?
Enroll on the course now. You'll gain immediate access to the membership area with all the course materials.
There will be a monthly live Zoom meeting for questions and discussions.
How long do I have access to the course?
You get lifetime access. For as long as the Hoof Geek Academy is active, you'll have access.
(I really don't want to try and predict how long your lifetime or my lifetime will be, so we'll go with the lifetime of the company :) )
How can I get a refund?
You can contact us through the contact form or reply to any of our emails to request a refund as long as it's within 30 days of your purchase date.
How much is the course?
Right now it's a one time payment of £22. The price may go up in the future but if you've already bought it - you really don't need to worry about that :)
It's very rare that I'd offer a discount. I feel that it's unfair to all the people who have already paid full price.
There is a £10 discount when buying this course together with the Hoof Health Laid Bare course, due to the level of cross over in the courses. I can't really do a course on hoof health without covering nutrition! This course goes deeper into management systems.
I will, no doubt, be adding more content and features to the course, and the price of the course may increase to reflect that. You will, of course, have access to all that content if you've already purchased. Essentially, the cheapest this course will ever be is today!
Will I have access to new content?
I will be adding more content to the course over time to keep it up to date. Maybe just because I've figured out a better way to explain something, I've discovered something really cool I want to share with everyone, or if there's been some scientific breakthroughs. You will get access to that as it goes live.
Will there be an exam?!?
Nope! That sounds awful!
There's no assessments, no exams, none of that horrible 'school' stuff. This course is to help you understand your horse better. It's to make your life better and less stressful.
How long are the modules?
It's hard to say as it depends how fast you go through it and how much added research or group discussion you want to do.
I don't think any module should take more than 1 hour to complete. I've worked hard to make sure you get all the information you need, while keeping things as simple as possible. I'm going for quality over quantity here. We've all got enough to do in our day and enough to worry about. As with the Hoof Geek blog posts I'm going for clear, simple, informative and fun.
I've avoided hour long video lessons that some courses are fond of. I think they're overwhelming, giving too much info in 1 go, and a right pain if you want to find a particular bit to review. Not to mention tough on the poor old broadband!
I'm keeping it short and sweet. Modules will be broken up into videos of 5 minutes or so and check sheets, written articles, diagrams or whatever format works best. This means you can fit a bit of study into each day - or cram it all in at the last minute if you like :) (I know which I'd do, but I may be more of a cautionary tale than a good example!!)
Do I need to have a facebook account?
The course content will be in the members area of this website. There are discussion sections for each lesson, so you can use them to interact with other students and tutors.
Do I get a certificate?
Yes. Once you've done all the core content you will get a certificate of completion.
