As a farrier for over 22 years, my passion for helping horses and the farrier trade has only grown.  I focus my practice on therapeutic shoeing and performance horses. During my time in the industry, I have also gained an interest in farriers themselves.  Primarily, an interest to help keep them sound.  An interest in one of our essential tools our apron.  Badger Built LLC, was born in 2014 after more than a decade of designing, researching, and making numerous aprons.  Over that time an ergonomic apron was created that works with your body, not against it.  It is the most comfortable apron I have ever worn so that the thought of sharing it with others and seemed fitting.  Teaming up with my wife Michaela made it possible.  After all, I thought other farriers just might want the same."

"Founded in 1908 as the Diamond Calk Company by blacksmith Otto Swanstrom, today Diamond Farrier is owned and managed by the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Company. From a modest beginning in Duluth, Minnesota, manufacturing only horseshoes by hand, Otto could not have imagined how this iconic brand would grow into the one-stop brand for farriers it is today; offering horseshoes, farrier tools, 
and horseshoe nails. As the world's largest independent horseshoe manufacturer, the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory is a market leader in the farrier industry. As a family-owned company since 1906, Kerckhaert shares Diamond's heritage and experience and brings added passion and innovation for quality and design of the product."

"Here at EasyCare, it's all about the horse and their human partners. Our business is manufacturing and distributing proven equine products that will enhance performance, provide protection, increase comfort for the horse and rider, and enrich the overall human-horse experience. Throughout five thousand years of domestication, the horse has had a more significant impact on human history than any other animal. Our goal is to help make the future of the horse/rider relationship as fulfilling and exciting as the past. What began in 1970 with the invention of the first Easyboot by Dr. Neel Glass to help a beloved family horse suffering from navicular disease, has since evolved into an entire line of hoof boots that provide an excellent alternative to iron shoes. This is due in part to the dedication, desire, and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. We're a company that cares deeply about horses and we will continue to develop products that provide comfort, support, and performance for our equine partners. We are more committed than ever to continue to create innovative hoof boot designs with features and options that will allow horse owners to provide a natural hoofcare solution for their horses."

"After a career of studying Equine Biomechanics and the way horses behave in nature, a horse owner, frustrated with the way her beloved Stallions chronic lameness was being treated invented the EponaShoe. Scientifically proven to allow the horse to move with more natural biomechanics, EponaShoe benefits the health of the whole horse and may extend the riding career of most performance horses.  Horses of all disciplines have tried and loved the EponaShoe. Whether it be a western event, dressage, trail, endurance, eventing, ranching, or just a pleasure ride; the EponaShoe gives a horse unmatched comfort by simulating the conditions under which horses would naturally maintain their hooves."

This product was originally created to sell to other farriers. Like many farriers, I have always encountered the basic problems found in many horses sore feet, thrush, feet that are either too soft or too hard and brittle, founder (laminitis), quarter cracks and white line disease. I started looking for a topical treatment and experimented with various ingredients; until I came up with what I now call Farriers Fix Hoof Oil.  Farriers Fix has all-natural ingredients and those who compete can be assured that it has tested negative under FEI guidelines. Farriers Fix works like Magic in the words of my clients. Horses that were suffering from stone bruises or were trimmed too short, in many cases, were rideable the next day the ultimate proof of a product that works."

"In 1946, George Earnest setup a small shop in Klamath Falls, Oregon, to fill requests for custom-made horseshoeing tools. One farrier told another about nippers that cut better and lasted longer than any others, and the enterprise grew. The business has changed ownership and location several times since, but the tools that are named for George Earnest still make the shoers work easier and hold up better under hard use than all the rest. Our pledge to our customers is to continue this tradition of excellence, combining the craftsmanship of skilled hands with modern methods and machinery, to produce superior tools. Since 1973, the Garner family has owned and operated G.E. Forge & Tool. During this time, they have developed and produced many, industry-leading products. This tradition is continuing into its third generation with no end in sight. Our high-quality staff aim to give you the customer service and quality product you deserve."

"Kawell began as a project to develop products based on copper to take advantage of its antimicrobial properties and its benefits in providing solutions to diseases associated with bacteria and fungi. Through research and several case studies, Kawell has developed proven copper alloy horseshoes and inserts to help improve hoof health and the overall quality of a horse's hoof.  Our horseshoes and inserts are a patent design and are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The institutions involved in this research were the Center for the Investigation, Development and Innovation of Structures and Materials (IDIEM) and the Institute of Nutrition and Food Technology (INTA), both under the authority of the University of Chile and University Santiago of Chile, Center of the Investigation of Materials. The Department of Farriership of the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences of the University of Chile supported and consulted the whole investigation."

"Ken Davis & Sons, Inc. got its start in the small rural central Ohio community of Richwood in 1949. At that time our founder, Ken Davis, bought a hardware store in partnership with Glenn Hughes, and they opened the Davis-Hughes Hardware Company. Many rural hardware stores of that era had a few Phoenix and Diamond keg shoes and Capewell nails as a part of the normal inventory. Ken was an avid horseman with a special interest in the Standardbreds. It was through his association with the Standardbred shoers that he started to add Willie Charlie rasps, McGraw Brothers swedge molds, Heller tools, leather pads, and Miller Scossa pads to the inventory. We have been privileged to do business in all 50 states and some foreign countries. We continue the tradition started by our father/grandfather of offering excellent service at fair prices.

"Over the past 15 years Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy PEMF" has become the go-to non-invasive, drug-free therapeutic modality used throughout the entire equine industry. In 2015, Magnus Magnetica developed and released its proprietary Hoof Pro System.  This is crucial for Farriers, who can now generate additional revenues by treating one hoof while working on another.  

Farriers and Veterinarians from around the world are learning about this technology and are not only using it in their practices, but also on their own bodies. So why do Farriers use PEMF on themselves?  Farriers are often frustrated by painful, chronic conditions.  They may be searching for a safe but effective alternative to pain pills to heal their body, improve sleep & physical performance.  The use of PEMF Technology just might be their answer. 
Many farriers have already visited with CEO Henry Siegel at past International Hoof-Care Summits or AAEP Conventions.  So, be sure to stop by their trade show booth at the Summit or AAEP Conventions or other events where you will receive PEMF treatments on your sore body parts. It will do wonders and you will better understand how horses benefit from these same treatments. In the meantime, for more information about the Hoof Pro System visit their website at"

Realizing the need for a farrier school with an emphasis on basic farrier skills, Donald Jones with the help of his wife Ruth Ann founded North Carolina School Of Horseshoeing Inc. in 1976. The school ran until 1983. Once the students were trained, they had problems finding the equipment needed to begin their profession. To help the students, Donald designed and developed the NC line of Farrier anvils with special features for shaping shoes. The gas-fired forge now known as the NC Whisper Forge soon followed and was patented in 1981. Today, NC Tool is a leading manufacturer of farrier tools and horseshoe supply company. NC Tool is still family-owned and producing the same quality products while making several improvements over the years."

"Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School is an internationally recognized 
award-winning vocational school which has been committed to the highest quality instruction available since 1991. A commitment to every student's success sets us apart from other schools. That commitment extends to all students regardless of background or special needs. There is no typical or right kind of student. In fact, students have ranged in age from 16 to 64 years old. We have educated everyone from rodeo cowboys, veterinarians, high school drop-outs, retired officers, auto mechanics, computer techs, aeronautical engineers, school teachers and anyone who is tired of working for someone else wants to work with animals or is just looking for a change. We are so confident of our teaching ability and our professional facility that we offer a 100% refund to any student who withdraws from the program, for any reason, on or before the end of the first week of training. Get that in writing from any other school!"

Soft-Ride Deep-Gel Equine Comfort boots is the latest innovation by Soft Ride co-owners whom have a long-standing commitment to the health and welfare of horses.  Over thirty years ago, these co-founders of Soft-Ride developed a pour-and-place urethane flooring system for equine facilities.  The equine friendly surfaces have been installed for safety and comfort in many of the great farms across the country.  The idea for Soft-Ride boots was born from a need to have mobile support for horses during the stress of trailering and travel.  The Soft-Ride system has since developed into a multifaceted company that not only addresses the comfort of horses on the road and in their stalls, but has also branched into the veterinary and farriery field to help comfort laminitic horses.  Different orthopedic inserts have been created to provide comfort and support when transporting and stabling as well as in the treatment and prevention of injuries for all types of equine.

"Ascending to the highest peaks of performance takes time, dedication, and skill. Whether a hobbyist, trainer, or professional athlete, the formula is the same. However, the higher the peaks, the greater the physical demands are on the animal. Apparent natural physical limits are reached, putting the goal of peak performance out of reach. Summit Joint Performance can put you and your horse or dog back on track to view the world from the SUMMIT."
