Students will gain experience with equine farriery as they spend time observing and participating in appointments with Eric John, the primary farrier for the Hospital for Large Animals (HLA).  Horses will be examined for medical conditions relating to the foot and Eric works closely with HLA clinicians and local veterinarians.  Students will also learn about routine trimming and shoeing. Horses are seen at the HLA or on farms and students will travel with Eric to see appointments or drive separately to meet him at the location.
