Every product is just as good as its user! For functional horseshoeing, you need not only a horseshoe of high quality but also a well-trained farrier. We want to offer to horse owners the option of getting a Certified Duplo User to shoe their horse and to ensure the quality of the result. For you as a farrier, the certification is optional, of course!
The training course (which is individually arranged for every participant) is organized by the NBvH (Niedersächsische Bildungsstätte von Hufbeschlaglehrschmieden = Lower Saxon Educational Establishment of Master Farriers) and covers the following topics:
- safety at work
- advantages and disadvantages of Duplo Composite Horseshoes
- information about product lines
- glue-on techniques
- application of open-toed horseshoes
- hands-on application
- checking and refining your own work
To find out when the next certification course is due, take a look at the NBvH website.
If you are a farrier and you'd like to become a Certified Duplo User, please send an e-mail to Stephan Becker.
If you are a horse owner and would like your horse to be shoed by a Certified Duplo User, take a look at our farrier list - maybe there's a Certified Duplo User in your region!
