Clinic with Farrier, George A. Thomson

Corinthian Equestrian Center is holding a free horse safety and handling clinic with retired farrier, George A. Thomson of Western New York on Saturday, August 12th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

George A. Thomson has been working with horses since the age of fifteen when he first apprenticed as a Farrier in 1955. He specialized throughout his fifty plus years in corrective shoeing to address diseases of the foot and lameness, such as Founder, Navicular, Club Foot, as well as reconstruction of the foot due to trauma. George is known for his ability to shoe not only American Saddlebreds and Morgan horses, but also the hunter, jumper, and eventing breeds. He’s well versed with knowledge of the appropriate movement needed to show the various horse breeds.

George has never been kicked by a horse in all his years with working with them. Find out how to be a friend to your horse, as well as work safely with them.
