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.
The trainer sees and works with the horse, and sometimes the horse owner, on a daily basis as competition draws near. During a thought-provoking session, trainer and Head of the International Hunter Derby Ron Danta will share "Important Topics in Show Hunters" during the 2020 Hunter/Jumper Performance Horse Hoof-Care Classroom. Some of the areas he addresses include nutrition, horse care and proper landing.
