A woman and her horse at the SPANA centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Lameness is one of the biggest problems facing animals today. It isn’t uncommon to see shoes that don’t fit a horse nailed on with unsuitable masonry nails – often into the sensitive part of the horse’s foot.

No working animal should have to endure this.

With the right education and resources, farriers won’t make these mistakes. With your support, we can provide that vital training.

The solution is simple, but will have a huge impact on thousands of working animals so they no longer suffer in silence.
