Step 5 - Field Mentorships

Step 5 — Field Mentorships 

Read everything on this page:

     Following the successful completion of the Step 4 Live Horse Trim Clinic, and approval by the ISNHCP of the Step 4 Video Evaluation, students may move forward to the Step 5 Field Mentorship phase of the training program.

Mentorship Requirements

  1. All students must complete at a minimum of 10 field mentorships (total of 10 days of training on live horses) with at least three different authorized ISNHCP Field Instructors, and no more than four mentorships with one field instructor.
  2. Measuring front hooves, recording one's results, and having them verified by your Field Instructor or their authorized assistants are required in your mentorships. Use the data form for Step 5 included in your ISNHCP DVD. You can also request this form from the ISNHCP if it was not included on your DVD at the time you entered the training program. Your instructor is required to have this form on hand as well. But it is your responsibility to come with multiple copies, depending on the number of horses you will be trimming. Use pencils rather than ink pens when filling in data in the form. Bringing a clip board for standard size copy paper is also recommended.

Field Instructors

     Most of our ISNHCP clinicians also serve as Field Instructors. Other authorized Field Instructors are listed and identified on the AANHCP website's Practitioner Locator List, by country, state/province, region and/or city/village. It is your responsibility to contact our ISNHCP Clinicians or Field Instructors to schedule your mentorships.  

Mentorship Fees

     Payment for your mentorships is made directly to the authorized Field Instructor. Do not pay the ISNHCP. The fee is standard worldwide at $200 (or equivalent by country).
