American Farriers Journal has released the speaker lineup for the 2019 International Hoof-Care Summit, and scheduled to present is distinguished farrier Mike Wildenstein.
Mike Wildenstein is among only four people in the world to have passed the distinguished Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Farriers examination in the United Kingdom with an “Honors” designation, as well as one of only a handful of farriers in the U.S. who have passed the Fellowship exam. He spent 19 years as resident farrier and adjunct associate professor at Cornell University and continues to share his knowledge through clinics, consultations and various other forms of media.
During his general session at the 2019 International Hoof-Care Summit, “Defining Equine Limb Conformation,” Wildenstein will share his systematic approach for identifying deviations to help attendees understand why conformation is a crucial skill every farrier and veterinarian must grasp to be an effective practitioner.
Additionally, on Thursday, Jan. 24, Wildenstein will lead a Hoof-Care Classroom, “Evaluation Of Equine Conformation To Assist In Defining Hoof Care Needs.” In this lesson, Wildenstein will address how the equine hoof capsule is in constant flux and share how making various shoe modifications has helped him retain healthy hooves.
