Strasser Worldwide Institute for Physiological Horse and Hoofcare

Dr. StrasserDr Hiltrud Strasser, DVM, PhD

In 2013, Dr. Strasser will concentrate her North American efforts on training a new crop of hoofcare students.

For over three decades, Dr. Strasser has studied the causes and cures for lameness as well as other common health problems of the domestic horse. Using her research, she developed a complete model for their care. This model minimizes a large percentage of the health issues associated with the care and keeping of horses today.

Dr. Strasser obtained her degrees in horse husbandry, breeding and veterinary medicine from the Humboldt and Freien Universities in Berlin. Later, she earned her Ph.D. from Freien University, as well.

Using the model of horse and hoof as found in natural conditions, Dr Strasser has had unprecedented successes in the treatment of laminitis as well as other lameness and health issues considered “incurable” using traditional methods. Her application of these techniques, along with proper trimming and horse keeping techniques, have been successful because they promote optimum health, thereby extending the domestic equine lifespan.

Dr. Strasser is the author of books on lameness, healing and natural boarding for horses and has written articles for use in horse and veterinary journals, some of which have been translated into half a dozen languages. She continues to travel around the world giving seminars and teaching veterinarians, farriers, and horse owners how to cure the incurable and to provide horses with a lifetime of soundness.

In 2000, she launched the barefoot movement in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Through the Strasser Worldwide Institute for Physiological Horse and Hoofcare, her techniques and knowledge impact the lives of horses globally.
