Management of Common Pathologies in Sport Horses
Farrier, Lexington, Ky.
Like human athletes, sport horses are bound to sustain injuries that can create both short- and long-term issues. In this session, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital Resident Farrier Stuart Muir will discuss how to manage the common pathologies that you will face.
Stuart started his horse shoeing career in Christchurch, New Zealand. After completing a 4 year apprenticeship, Muir started his own business in 1999 and worked towards obtaining his New Zealand certification. Once certified, Muir continued to expand his business, working on numerous therapeutic cases and on some of New Zealand’s top race and show horses. In 2012, Muir was hired as full-time farrier at Rood & Riddle Equine, where he worked under the guidance of Dr. Scott Morrison.
Muir’s clientele at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital consists of sport horses and horses that have diagnosed pathology. Muir enjoys the challenge of working on complex pathology and enjoys rehabilitating horses. His passion for offering advanced hoof care while at the hospital, has given him the opportunity to experience shoeing sport horses in America and South America, and race horses in the Middle East.
Muir gained his American Farriers Association Certified Journeyman Farrier Certificate in 2014 and his diploma with The Worshipful Company of Farriers in 2018. He continues to offer education and lecturing for organizations and veterinary clinics throughout America and Canada. Some of the organizations include The Equine Lameness Prevention Organization and the International Hoof-Care Summit.
His work has been published in many magazines, journals and magazines — including American Farriers Journal. In 2017 Stuart was elected as a Board member for the North East Association of Equine Practitioners.
