Saint Vincent College Equestrian Club and team will host a demonstration, “Sound and Solid Shoeing for the Difficult Horse,” by Wylie Shultz of Travesty Farms of Apollo at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, at the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve.

Shultz will demonstrate how to work with navicular, foundered and other horses with a compromised hoof wall. The live horse demonstration will include glue-on shoeing options and other corrective measures to assist these horses.

“Mr. Shultz has more than 40 years of dedicated farrier experience and is one of the most respected farriers in Western Pennsylvania,” commented Dr. Veronica Ent, club sponsor and coach. “He has trained and mentored many younger farriers and continues to offer professional development opportunities featuring well-known farriers and clinics for skill advancement in blacksmithing, corrective measures and hoof care. He is currently mentoring Tyler May, a 2016 graduate of Kiski Area High School, who will also be presenting.”

Shultz lives in Apollo and owns and operates Travesty Farms. “He is an avid horseman with experiences in farming, riding and driving,” Ent added.  “He and many of his family members are well-known in the area for agribusinesses.”
