Date published: 06 March 2019

CAFRE Enniskillen Campus hosted the first Equine Foot Balance Course run in conjunction with the Worshipful Company of Farriers (WCF).

Trainers and farriers who participated in the CAFRE Equine Foot Balance Course

The course involved four trainers (and Fellow of the WCF) Simon Moore, Jonathan Nunn, Mark Watson and Mark Trussler each working with a group of participants to assess and balance the hooves of a range of horses.

Alongside this Dr. Sean Rooney (MRCVS) provided an invaluable service by x-raying the horses before, during and after shoeing. This resulted in a fast paced interactive day that everyone found informative, enlightening and enjoyable.

This was run as part of the CPD Industry Training programme run by CAFRE Enniskillen Campus and we would like to thank the trainers, Dr Sean Rooney and Martin Payne for their participation in making this day such a success.
