International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame member Simon Curtis is hosting an online event Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020, to officially launch the release of his book The Farrier.

Curtis, a Newmarket, England, farrier, will share videos and interactive posts during the Facebook Live event, which will be at 1 p.m. EDT. It will feature a live question and answer period, as well as giveaways.

“The Farrier is a pictorial journey across the equine world, recording farriers at work on six continents,” according to Curtis’ website. “Simon captures the essence of the farrier’s world using his unequalled opportunities to photograph over 60 farriers.”
