Horseshoeing days at Eldhestar

On November 8th and 9th the annual Icelandic horseshoeing days took place at our farm for the second time. Our stable and riding hall where well prepared for farriers from all over the country.

The program included a workshop with teaching demonstration about hot shoeing,

form changing on horse shoes and effect on movement, followed by education about the importance of good hoof care. Like last year, the instructor was the renowned farrier from Denmark, Jesper Eriksson Eurenius who won the Swedish- and Scandinavian championship in horseshoeing several times.

On Saturday afternoon the event was open to the public with exhibitions, product demonstrations and finally the Icelandic shoeing competition with reward ceremony.

We are very happy to announce that our main farrier Geert has won the 2nd place in the shoeing competition – meaning that he is the 2nd best farrier in Iceland!

Congratulations & til hamingju, Geert!
