Maneline Kerckhaert Farrier and Blacksmith Championship
Farriers and blacksmiths from all over New Zealand will go hoof to hoof at Equidays, in what promises to be the largest show of shoeing skill in the country. Equidays and Kowhai Forge are excited to present the Kowhai Forge Artistic Blacksmithing Competition on Friday 14 October and the Great Maneline Kerckhaert Farriers Shoe Off on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October. The Championship will ask farriers to display their skill, training and techniques in an environment designed to see them push themselves, while the blacksmithing competition gives competitors the Friday of Equidays to traditionally forge anything they desire. The winner will be decided by Equidays visitors and works will be auctioned off for charity.
