American Farriers Journal has announced the addition of Kentucky Horseshoeing School’s Mitch Taylor to the 2019 International Hoof-Care Summit speaker lineup.

Taylor is most recognizable throughout the industry as the head of the Kentucky Horseshoeing School and a go-to clinician for presentations on equine anatomy. However, before he was known as an educator, he spent his time working as a farrier in various disciplines, including racetracks out west and in the Bluegrass state.

Taylor believes it is crucial for farriers to understand hoof and lower limb anatomy to better serve the horse. That is why he will be kicking off the International Hoof-Care Summit with his General Session presentation on Jan. 22., “Anatomy Review: Form And Function.” During this impactful and experience driven session, Taylor will review the anatomy of the hoof and lower limb, focusing on key components and highlighting several points crucial to sustained performance of the horse. Attendees will gain insight on why injuries occur and their role in supporting the horse.
