Townsville-based Equine Solutions has filled a niche previously unavailable to northern horse sport enthusiasts with the introduction of a farrier supply service which is the first of it’s kind for the region.
Business owner Liz Cairns said she decided to “strike while the iron was hot” when the opportunity arose to lease the adjacent shopfront which had recently been vacated, to create the dedicated hoofcare expansion to the shop which opened earlier this month.
“Until now horse owners across the north have had to pay a fortune to get the required equipment, products and accessories freighted from Brisbane,” Liz said.
“We’ve always sold horseshoes, but there was a need for a more thorough range of related products and an in-house farrier service,” she said.
“Now people can come to town and have a look around; or they can buy through our online site for overnight delivery.
