Shoeing The Sports Horse For Competition
Steve Teichman, Chester County Farrier Associates, Unionville, Pa.
Keeping clients on a regular footcare schedule typically is the foundation for maintaining soundness. But sometimes your clients will need you to respond to an issue found in competition or training. Steve Teichman will examine the cases in which you may need to provide on-the-spot hoof-care insight. Teichman will use his experience in 25 years of working with hunters/jumpers, dressage competitors and eventers and his role as the farrier for the U.S. Olympic team to deliver practical solutions for helping equine athletes at all levels.
