Welcome

Equine Podiatry Training Ltd is a UK based training organisation for people aiming to become professional Equine Podiatrists.

The company’s qualification, the Diploma in Equine Podiatry, is the most comprehensive non-farriery hoofcare qualification available in the world today and is the only qualification of a high enough standard to be recognised as an entry requirement for membership to the Equine Podiatry Association.

Announcement, 14 July 2021: Equine Podiatry Training Ltd is now a LANTRA-recognised training provider and the Level 5 Diploma in Equine Podiatry is an accredited qualification, awarded by LANTRA Awards and regulated by OFQUAL.  This is the only nationally recognised qualification of its kind in the UK.

The application window for the course starting September 2021 has now closed and this course is fully booked. We are currently taking applications for the course starting September 2022. However, places may still become available for the September 2021 intake should students drop out before the start date. The 2021 course information pack and application form can be downloaded from here. The 2022 course information pack will be available shortly. For an informal chat about the course, please contact us.

Covid-19 Statement: We have modified our approach to course delivery to meet the challenges posed by Covid-19.  The course starting September 2021 is going ahead but with a new format including a mixture of online and face-to-face delivery so as to make the course more resilient to any future lockdowns, etc. As a result, course information packs downloaded prior to 14th July 2021 are now out-of-date. We will be sending new, updated course information packs to those people shortly to reflect the new course format.

Please see our standards and regulation page for information on how our courses fit with the current moves towards regulation of professional barefoot trimming.
