A galloping success….


As a forward thinking practice we are always looking for ways to offer more to our clients, part of this includes seminars, practical courses and talks by valued guest speakers. As a member of XL Vets Equine we join a national awareness campaign for horses and owners each year.

For 2015 this is all about the horse’s foot – ‘Keeping One Step Ahead’. In light of this, Alnorthumbria Equine organised a client evening all about remedial farriery with guest speaker Jim Ferrie. Jim is a Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Farriers and we are privileged to have him as our regular visiting consultant farrier at The Fairmoor Equine Clinic. The evening proved very popular with over 70 clients coming along to learn all about the internal anatomy of the horse’s foot, and how remedial farriery can promote long-term soundness.

Attendees were also able to indulge in some shopping thanks to Robson and Cowan, who also kindly donated some gifts for the raffle. The food was also quite special with the desserts going down a treat! Farriery is a vital part of the prevention and treatment of lameness relating to a horse’s foot. Remedial farriery can maximise the horse’s movement potential through efficient bio-mechanics which in turn help related joints and soft tissue structures remain uninjured for as long as possible during a horse’s working life.

We hope that all those that came along took away valuable information that will help guide them in the future with their horses. We are very lucky to be able to hold nights like this and Alnorthumbria Equine would like to thank all those that came along to the evening, with a special thanks to guest speaker Jim Ferrie.
