We are lucky enough to have Carol Layton, Equine Nutritionist coming to us for a full day workshop for only $110 per participant….

Carol is an independent equine nutritionist and lectures in equine nutrition for the nationally recognised Australian Certified Hoofcare Course and presents in conferences in Australia and overseas.
