What Our Students Have to Say
Thay have been very useful as thay are inline with the shoeing and lameness issues of today, Thay have helped me with my everyday shoeing and my more complicated remedial shoeing.
And for me it has enabled My business to keep abreast of all the new thinking and techniques.
I have known Mark for over 20 years plus, and thoe his understanding is so far advanced, he still manages For Me to understand his scientific thinking and study’s.
I’ve never not been able to ask a question no matter how trivial, I’m very busy at home like everybody else so I have now become very selective to the lectures and clinics I go to.
Dr Mark Caldwell is my go to farrier When I need ideas or confirmation of what I’m thinking regards shoeing.
Summer had had intermittent lameness, vets had been unable to find anything wrong and until I changed to Alex nor had the farriers. We arrived during farrier lunch and Mark made us very welcome.
From the outset the event was professional, informative and open. It was a teaching clinic where the farriers were taught by getting them to focus on the history of the horse, confirmation and movement of the horse. Challenging the farriers and encouraging them to apply their learning and experience.
Mark was friendly, open and encouraging, willingly sharing his knowledge with both the Farrier’s and the clients. The event was inclusive and there was a good atmosphere. I’d recommend his clinics to both farriers and their clients. Since the clinic my horse has been fully sound"
I have heard him present 6 or 7 times and made the trip from Ontario, Canada, to North Carolina October 24th, 2019, for a 2-day lecture and practical hands-on clinic.
On the first day, a classroom type presentation, Mark used visual and live analogies (I myself was used for a live demonstration by Mark in Cincinnati at the International Hoofcare Summit in January 2019) to impress upon us a variety of concerns and consequences regarding balance and support.
The sessions were incredibly educational and informative with Mark's passion to educate very clear.
We had great feed back from the public who brought horses for the clinic.
Since our meeting in 2011 I have attended several of his clinics and I again hosted Dr. Caldwell in the Summer of 2018. He is an outstanding teacher and has always received the utmost respect from his fellow farriers at the clinics I have been a part of. Dr. Caldwell has a unique teaching style that keeps his audience engaged while also encouraging his participants to think on a deeper level.
His antics are light hearted and equally disbursed amongst both men and women. I look forward to hosting Dr. Caldwell again in the near future.
