Join American Farriers Journal April 24-26 for the first Performance Horse Hoof-Care Classroom focused on hunters and jumpers. This 100% free-to-attend online educational event will feature 8 on-demand video presentations attendees can watch online on their own schedule, during these 3 days.
The Performance Horse Hoof-Care Classroom offers practical information about shoeing for different surfaces, managing common pathologies of hunters/jumpers, competition judging and how it relates back to farriery, and advice from leading professionals in the hunter/jumper field.
During a thought-provoking session, "Radiographs Can Help Vet–Farrier Collaboration," Brewster, N.Y., veterinarian Dr. Kit Miller will share how radiographs can help vet–farrier collaboration and the best ways to keep horses healthy.
When providing hoof care for equine athletes, it’s not a matter of if an injury will occur, but when. Radiographs are an integral tool that veterinarians and farriers can rely on. In this session, Dr. Kit Miller of Miller & Associates of Brewster, N.Y., and also the first president of the Northeast Association of Equine Practitioners (NEAEP), will discuss how radiographs can help the vet-farrier team develop a shoeing plan.
