Equine podiatry is the study and management of the equine foot based on its anatomy and function.
The job title of "Equine Podiatrist" is used by people with a wide range of backgrounds. Some are veterinarians who have chosen to specialise in the equine hoof, some are remedial farriers and there are also a new group of specialists with neither a veterinary nor farriery background who work with horse owners to improve the health of the equine hoof without the use of shoeing and by taking a more holistic approach.
