#1  How To Better Understand What We See

Better understanding what we see is life's mission. The unique characteristics of each foot make them as different as the faces of people. The small variances in distance occur naturally, as well as a response to injury and disease. This first of this series teaches how to observe the smallest details that once were not detected; sketching what your mind's eye sees, opens the window to better understanding the large range of norm, as well as pathology.

#2 How To Obtain the Most Informative Radiographs

Radiographs are the gold standard for therapeutic trimming and shoeing decisions. Very specific information requires specific beam orientation, considerably different than traditional standard views. The sought after info is paramount to assist the vet and farrier as they seek answers concerning the seat of the problem, relative to history and physical findings. Assessing precisely what they have to work with, e.g. sole depth, palmar angle, digital breakover and other parameters, greatly enhances the potential for success.

#3 How to Correlate Soft Tissue Parameters and External Landmark

The information revealed in the low beam lateral and DP image has a direct link to the external characteristics. The hoof capsule is constantly changing and adapting to many variables. The most dramatic alteration comes from within. It's what we can't see that holds the most answers as to why the appearance of the foot can make drastic changes. Learn how growth ring patterns can tell the history of the foot and allude to the future.

#4 Drawing Insights Into the Mechanical Formula

There is no better way to learn to feel the movement of components acting on each other's que than to sketch them over and over, again and again. Training the eye hand coordination to transfer thoughts and imaginary visions to paper becomes a means of not only better understanding how the forces within the foot influence the outside, but allows us to collect our thoughts relative to the task at hand. The better we understand the cause and effect, the more proficient we become.

#5 How to Use the Radiographic Blueprint for Optimum Results

Using the radiograph as a blueprint offers a consistent and reliable means of developing an efficient mechanical plan, relative to what there is to work with and the proposed goals. The blueprint can be further formalized with an overlay of the sketch that can point out the pros and cons of the thought process, and become a great benchmark to assure goals have been met, and as a new base line.

#6 How to Better Understand the Mechanical Formula

The mechanical formula is a reflection of physics 101. The components of the foot can be defined as SUSPENSION and SUPPORT. They complement each other, and when in a state of harmony and equilibrium, the foot is healthy and balanced. This session breaks down the complexity of this amazing organ offering the student a new mindset that can be building blocks for treating numerous foot issues.

#7 The Value of Radiographic Guided Shoeing

Radiographic guided therapeutic trimming and shoeing greatly enhances strategic mechanical decisions. The rasp, knife, nippers and shoe greatly alter the internal component/force relationship, and attempting to save a career or life without purpose driven radiographic information, leaves success to chance.

Dr. Redden D.V.M, Equine Podiatry Pioneer

Dr. Redden is known worldwide as the leading pioneer for the highly focused field of equine podiatry. Developing the very first exclusive podiatry practice and clinic over 4 decades ago Dr Redden has also been dedicated to teaching farriers and veterinarians his many innovative concepts and techniques. 

His work and that of his students have set a new and exciting benchmark for the standard of care for many common career and life-threatening foot issues. This is the first time his indepth teaching has been offered online through the WCEA.
