Wisconsin Supplier Expands Into Texas

WHILE SERVING FARRIERS for many years from its Burlington, Wis., location, Centaur Forge recently expanded with the opening of a branch in New Braunfels, Texas. The Texas operation will be run by Mike Chambers, who has over 35 years of experience in the farrier industry and formerly operated the Hill Country Horseshoeing School in Kerrville, Texas.

Centaur Forge president Ernie Litynski says the Texas operation is holding a grand opening on Sept. 18 that will feature a shoeing clinic with lectures and demonstrations throughout the day. Farriers can pre-register for the free clinic by calling (800) 666-9175 or e-mailing info@centaurforge.com.
