is a major breakthrough in farrier and hoofcare education,"
according to Baron Tayler, Site Manager of The Farrier & Hoofcare
Resource Center. "Attending real conventions and conferences
is a great experience, but the vast majority of farriers and horse
owners can't take the time off to attend them. Or they don't want
to spend what it costs to attend. When you total up travel, room,
meals, registration fees and lost income, well, it adds up quickly.
Using the Internet as the delivery platform, all those expenses
are gone except for the registration fee. Online conferences will
never replace real conferences, but they will make continuing education
accessible to a much wider audience."
Every registrant will also be receiving a complete record of the
Conference on both DVD and VHS media, courtesy of Thoro'Bred and
