AllinFlex proudly sponsored the Farrier Competition held in Christchurch at Grant & Dale Nyhan place. A variety of classes were held, from apprentice to the masters of the trade.
No feet, no horse is the saying and as we all know how true this is. All members of the NZ Farrier association are qualified farriers or training to become qualified. When choosing a farrier of this association you know they received training and keeping up with the news in the trade. A good portion of them competes regularly in NZ and abroad, to enhance skills and knowledge.
Looking after the equine joint by good shoeing is their job, but also a lot of strain on their own body. This is were AllinFlex Hominis may assist. So when asked to sponsor this event we didn't hesitate, as if we look after them..... they look after our equine friends.
