EasyCare Inc. Sponsors Australian Equine Podiatry Weekend

Tucson, AZ – February 15, 2008 – EasyCare is pleased to announce a workshop with Dr. Bowker that is being held in conjunction with "Equethy" on the far south coast of NSW, Australia with Mike and Chris Ware who are also Easycare Down Under. The workshop is for Professional Hoof Care Providers and veterinarians who deal in barefoot rehabilitation and is scheduled for March 29 and 30, 2008.

Chris Ware has this to say about the event: “Attending are professional trimmers some who are traveling from as far away as Western Australia, Qld. and the Northern Territory. It is fully booked already and we are looking forward to having a wonderful weekend with Bob who is keen to present his latest research and explain how it relates to hoof care at the "coal face".

As part of the weekends lectures Andrew Bowe "The Barefoot Blacksmith" will also talk about his work with seriously foundered horses and Mike Ware of Easycare Down Under will talk on the many aspects of using the Easycare range of hoof boots for the rehabilitation of hooves with serious issues and present the new range of boots.

We feel it will also be an amazing opportunity for professional trimmers from all over Australia to discuss this ever expanding new career. All the proceeds from this workshop are going to Dr. Bowker for his new research.

On the following Friday Professor Bowker is scheduled to teach the first module of the brand new Diploma in Equine Podio-therapy course commencing in Melbourne at the National College of Traditional Medicine.

The Equine Podio-therapy Course is the reason Dr. Bowker is in Australia. This is the first time this vast field of equine care has been delivered as a Diploma level course and it will create a whole new career path for those who wish to work in the field of full time professional hoof care dealing with serious hoof problems. This is a ground breaking course and at present no other course has been offered which deals with natural hoof care as a specialty therapy. To have Dr. Bowker teaching the first module is wonderful for the first intake of students. Other lecturers are Andrew Bowe, a Master Farrier of 20 years experience who runs Australia's leading rehabilitation centre for foundered horses, Dr. Alison Mcintosh a veterinarian and equine chiropractor and barefoot trimmer who has long championed the cause of barefoot rehabilitation for serious hoof issues, Wayne Anderson, also a Master Farrier, barefoot trimmer, but more recently he has followed his passion as a natural horse educator and trained with Buck Brannerman in the States and Mike Ware of Easycare Down under a professional trimmer who will also bring to the course his business skills from his "last" life!

Dr. Bowkers role in this course is largely due to the generosity of Easycares’ Garrett Ford who has kindly offered a grant towards Dr. Bowker’s nonprofit research. This has greatly assisted us in bringing him here and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Easycare for their ongoing support, generosity and vision.”

EasyCare, Inc. has been a leader in the hoof boot industry for years, beginning with the invention of the Easyboot back in the early 70’s. Since then, the need for boots has grown tremendously as more and more horse owners see the healthy advantages of pulling shoes and switching to natural hoof care. EasyCare is excited about being part of this growing trend.
