EFC Heel Support Pad Demo at Atlantic Equine

Despite the date, all went well at an EFC Heel Support Pad demo by Alf Hall at the Atlantic Equine warehouse in Daventry on Friday 13 December.

An excellent turn-out of twenty-three farriers took the opportunity to earn three CPD points and enjoyed festive food and special discounts along with the demo.

"We've run other demo's here," said Tony Lindsell of Atlantic Equine," but it's the first time we've had a horse here. The other business and drivers in Low March were somewhat bemused to see it being trotted up on this normally horse-less industrial estate, a crowd of people staring intently at its legs!"

The demo generated a lot of interest with several farriers planning to follow up with Alf Hall, judging the pads to be a possible solution for problem horses.

A Christmas raffle, with prizes donated by Atlantic Equine including some framed prints, GE nippers and other tools, also raised £195 which has been donated to the Save the Children Syria fund and the Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan appeal.
