If you live in the vicinity of Lincoln, Nebraska, we invite you to attend Dr. Butler’s Nebraska Horse Expo program on “Humane Hoof Care,” at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, March 13, 2010! His 2:00 p.m. program is scheduled in the Nebraska Room of the Lancaster Event Center, Lincoln, Nebraska.
And there’s more “March Gladness” to share, because from 3:00-6:00 p.m., on March 13th, Doug is available for questions in the Ask-a-Farrier session, scheduled in Pavilion II – Equine Barn, Booth R6.
Saturday’s presenter attended the Cal Poly horseshoeing school in 1963, was one of the first farriers in the American Farriers Association to become a CJF (Certified Journeyman Farrier) in 1983, and the first American to become a FWCF (Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Farriers) of Great Britain in 1992. He earned a dual PhD in Veterinary Anatomy and Equine Nutrition from Cornell University.
More modern farriers have been trained by Doug Butler than any teacher in the history of the craft. He is the only person who has been National and International Horseshoeing Champion, inducted into the International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame and honored as a “Farrier Industry Legend.”
He has served on editorial advisory boards of The American Farriers Journal, Hoof Care & Lameness, Equine Practice, Equine Athlete, and Equus magazines.
Dr. Butler is the author of The Principles of Horseshoeing, the most widely used farrier textbook in the world, now in its third edition (P3). In addition, he has written several other texts to help farriers and horse people. Shoeing in Your Right Mind helps develop visualization skills, and Six-Figure Shoeing helps develop farrier business skills.
The “Butler Classic Collection” has recently been released with eight single dvds to teach anatomy, shoeing and forging skills.
In addition to training farriers, Dr. Butler has presented at international veterinary conferences and in most of the veterinary schools in America.
Doug specializes in helping farriers reach higher levels of skill in business and in life. From 1964 to 1995, he taught farrier science and other equine courses at various universities. In 2000, he organized Farrier Focus® Conference, the first farrier business conference. In 2006, Doug and his sons, Jake and Pete, established Butler Professional Farrier School, LLC, near Chadron, Nebraska. (Visit www.butlerprofessionalfarrierschool.com for more information.)
Those attending Saturday’s Nebraska Horse Expo presentation will have the rare opportunity to learn from the man an associated press reporter called, “The master of the horseshoeing universe”!
