"The motivation to continue to evolve, to improve and therefore to make a difference to each horse."

Julien Hazard is a farrier in the regio of Ile de France who mainly shoes sport horses as well as leisure horses. Julien's greatest motivation is the daily contact with horses. "What drives me is to always try to evolve, to constantly improve," says Julien. He finds it very important to keep an eye on colleagues, veterinarians... For him it is one of the best things to advance.

"The combination of skills makes it possible to work with greater precision."

The cooperation between a veterinarian and a farrier can make a big difference in the care and performance of the horse. By combining the two areas of expertise, focused work can be done. "In order to optimise my individual fittings, I like to work closely with vets and professional riders. They give me the missing and necessary information to preserve and improve the locomotion and skills of each horse," says Julien.
