Thorncroft is thrilled to present our July 24 Posture Prep Clinic with Dr. Patricia Bona: chiropractor to humans, inventor of the Posture Prep® and Wellness Prep™, and a consultant for the Posture Prep Cross Fiber grooming technique for horses and small animals.

Clinic participants will evaluate several different horses as to their positive and challenging confirmation traits, and learn to optimize the horses’ natural strengths while also learning the problems that come along and how to help and treat them. Participants will learn how to use the Posture Prep equipment. Dr Bona is gifting one Posture Prep Cross Fiber System for Horses to each participant.

There will be two separate sessions from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. OR 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., each with limited spots. The session will start with a lecture, followed by hands on groups, focusing on one horse per group.
