Farriery has entered a new, more evidence-based era. Anecdote and tradition are now being quantified and we are passionate about science being the base for the daily practice of hoof care around the globe. Finding that science can be difficult, so we are bringing it to you! You’ll learn about how the body mass and height influence conformation and symmetry, what are the effects of various shoe clip applications on the hoof wall, how hoof balance affects and is affected by equine posture, what are the modern measuring systems useful to farriers and much more! Times will be released closer to date. Profits will go toward future research. The event goes live on September 10th at 5 PM BST.

  • Approx 20 lectures, with a quick Q&A with the speaker (if available) after the lecture is played.

  • CPD certificates with hours of attendance will be available after the event (approx 20 hours of lectures).

  • Most talks will remain available to keep on your hub dashboard forever. Others will only be available for 2 weeks due to licensing agreement with the speaker.
