Tens of Romanians learn horseshoeing from Britons
The project of the Britons is run in Romania for five years, and the courses at Sinca Noua are the only ones of their kind in the country. The locals, impressed with the passion of the Britons for horse raising, said they have never met such persons, willing to tell something about their profession to people they do not know.
Andrew Brebear told the daily that Romania, a country with beautiful landscapes, it has an opportunity to develop horse tourism, but several things have to be changed, for that. "We have come to help people make the saddles by themselves and shoe the horses properly. This is not only a matter of comfort, it is related to the health of the animal, " he said.
Shoe and saddle makers have to observe the smallest details, the comfort of the horse and the horseman depends on the quality of horseshoes and harnesses. At the end of the project, besides the experience gathered, some of the best of those who took the courses can be given a set of tools specific to these professions, worth around 1,000 euros each.
