Top 5 Things Trainers Would Like Farriers to Know

Ron Danta

Trainer and Head of the International Hunter Derby, Camden, S.C.
 
 

The trainer sees and works with the horse, and sometimes the horse owner, on a daily basis as competition draws near. The trainer can provide valuable information about the horse’s history regarding movement or lameness issues that can help in deciding how to set up the foot and type of shoeing. Ron Danta operates Beaver River Farm in South Carolina and has trained or ridden many successful show hunters over the years. He serves as a judge and committee member for the U.S. Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) and the U.S. Equestrian Federation (USEF). He offers his perspective on the farrier trainer relationship and how the team can serve the best interest of the horse and achieve competition success.
