It's that time again! From the 09th to the 17th of March 2019, we and our team will be present at Europe's biggest horse fair, the Equitana in Essen - the perfect opportunity to get to know our products first hand or to increase your stock of ESPRIT's! We also offer you great prices here again - take the measurements of your horses hooves  in advance and bring them with you to benefit from them. The easiest way is to measure and record the widest width and the longest length of the hoof, or by placing the hoof on a sheet of paper and drawing the outline. Together we will find out which fitting suits your horse best. Hall 1, stand 1-A25.

NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW - NEW
We will also introduce the prototype of our new hoof boots 'Adventure'!

We are looking forward to your visit!

 

New partner: Anja Jäckel

Recently, we are working together with Anja Jäckel, a state-approved Blacksmith and hoof trimmer. She is the director of the Center for Hoof Care, Hoof Protection & Horse Health, where she has been providing information evenings, hoof-, riding- and groundwork courses for horse owners for several years and training new 'hoof professionals'.

Here are a few words from Anja about her person:

"I was born in 1982, started vaulting at the age of 4, riding on Icelandic horses at the age of 7. At the age of 12, I bought my first horse of my own savings, which I gained through riding other peoples horses, training horses for competitions and giving riding lessons. During school holiday I went with different farriers and after high school I did the hoof care and hoof technique training at the BESW Hufakademie and the corresponding examinations at the German Hoof Register, as well as the apprenticeship of the University of Veterinary Medicine Berlin to the state recognized blacksmith.
Since 2003 I am self-employed in the Kassel area. I specialize in barefoot trimming and alternative hoof protection - which is why the ESPRIT fits in well with my concept.
In 2013, I founded the Center for Hoof Care, Hoof Protection & Horse Health. Here I offer a variety of courses and seminars, as well as hoof care and Hoof Technique training and have the opportunity to treat horses on site/ provide them with orthopedic hoof protection or to hospitalize them for hoof therapy."
