Welcome everyone, a group of fellow farrier podcasters and myself, decided to get together and have a conversation about farrier and healthcare professionals’ safety. We did this to address the seemingly epidemic number of farrier injuries the world over as of late. Upon conversing about these incidents, it has become apparent that many could have been avoided.
Our goal here was to have a conversation, bringing our unique perspectives to the table, to educate horse owners on the various ways they can mitigate the dangers faced by farriers. We understand that it is sometimes awkward to have these conversations with your clients without potentially offending them or sounding like we’re just complaining. The sad reality is that in some cases, these conversations could potentially save careers or even lives, so we had it for you. Please share this with as many horse folk as you can. It was an honour to have this discussion with Alicia Harlov of the Humble Hoof podcast, Dr. Simon Curtis of The Hoof of the Horse podcast and Daniel Bennett of the Lockdown Farriery Learning podcast.
I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.
