A farrier’s guide to the Olympics - Ben Benson
Ben took us on a tour of the Tokyo Olympics and shared with us all the trials and tribulations of planning, running and working as the lead farrier at an Olympics, responsible for the care and maintenance of all the hooves on the ground. Talking about the equipment they sourced, used and built on-site as well as tackling language barriers and difficult circumstances brought on by the heat, and cooling techniques.
A wonderful insight into the ingenuity and unprecedented care our farriers have for all horses for all . . .
