Clinic with Dr. Simon Curtis, Saturday 7th July at 9am
The Irish Master Farriers Association is hosting a clinic with Dr. Simon Curtis FWCF, Ph.D on Saturday 7th July at the Racing Academy and Centre of Education, Kildare.
The clinic which is free to IMFA members is open to veterinary professionals for a fee and will include four lectures covering findings from Dr. Curtis’s PhD, and will also look at farriery treatment for foal deviation. In the afternoon there will be two linked lectures; the first will explore why hooves change shape, and the second will discuss how, as farriers, we can improve hoof shape by trimming and shoeing. Here’s a brief summary of each lecture:
Lecture 1: Hoof development – from foal to maturity
Lecture 2: Farriery for foals
Lecture 3: Effects upon the equine hoof that cause hoof shape
Lecture 4: Farriery techniques to change hoof shape
