ESP offers three membership types: A "Professional Membership" for individual veterinarians and farriers. A “Practice Membership" is for veterinary clinics that also include farriers within their practice, or private practice veterinarians that work directly with one specific farrier within their practice, or multi-vet practices. Please contact us for discounted pricing. We also offer our veterinary "Student Membership" that is open to current veterinary students.
Membership is open to Veterinarians focusing on lower limb lameness and/or podiatry; farriers with a minimum of 8 years experience whose practice has a strong focus on lameness; and veterinary students with interest in equine lameness and podiatry.
A membership lasts 1 year from the date you sign up
