AFJ Online Classroom: "Teaching Hoof Care in a Developing Nation" (1 CE)

Norwich, England, farrier Mark Aikens traveled to India as part of the Flying Anvil Foundation's program. While there, he instructed novice farriers on the practices of better footcare.

In this webinar, Aikens will share fascinating highlights from this trip and explain the unique challenges that farriers in India and other countries face. Many of the horses that these farriers will work on are still used as working animals, so the livelihood of a community often depends on quality footcare.

Aikens' presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
