The Equine Lameness Prevention Organization

The E.L.P.O. is dedicated to questioning, monitoring, and improving upon practices regarding hoof care. 

This organization was designed to be a place where horse owners, horse enthusiasts and equine professionals can go to get help, offer assistance to others, exchange ideas, and discuss the health & soundness of their equine companions.

The Equine Lameness Prevention Organization (E.L.P.O.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that is dedicated to progressive research and education for equine health. We know from both treating and preventing lameness, that many solutions start from the ground up.  Many of our contributor and members are part of the hoof care community, however we have input and participation from individuals that are involved in all aspect of equine care and stewardship.  We look forward to your input and involvement in this Community and we appreciate your Care and Hope for equine soundness.
