........ I am Carola Adolf, NEP. I am a Naturopathic Equine Podiatrist, one of the six qualified "Hufheilpraktiker” in Australia. I graduated in 2003 through the German "Institut für Hufgesungheit und Ganzheitliche Pferdebehandlung" and have been working as professional hoofcare provider ever since. Besides looking after my own horses, I have a busy hoofcare practise with often challenging cases. I specialize in the holistic rehabilitation of horses, ponies and donkies with severe soundness problems, such as diagnosed navicular disease, laminitis, founder and various hoof deformities. I have dedicated a significant part of my practice to the education of horse owners and therefore help prevent soundness related problems through better awareness and knowledge. I am proud to be able to help many horse owners to making more educated decisions, questioning senseless traditions or confusing new trends and embracing the principles of nature. Many of my clients have become self sufficient and competent owner-trimmers, some have even become professionals themselves.
Through professional networking and offering professional development opportunities, as well as mentoring new students and apprentices of hoof- and healthcare professions, I am part of a small group of qualified hoofcare professionals in Australia who not only have extensive practical experience in the field but also have an in-depth knowledge of Equine Podiatry which is based on the scientific knowledge of Zoology, Anatomy, Physiology, Histology and practical trimming techniques which are applied with extreme care to fit the individual's needs.
The actual work on the hooves is only part of the holistic approach I have when I aim to improve or restore my patients' soundness.
This is what I practise and teach.
