Tens of Romanians learn horseshoeing from Britons

Tens of Romanians of all over Romania have gathered at Sinca Noua, Brasov County, to learn horseshoeing from saddling from Britons, the Adevarul daily writes. The program is run by the International League for the Protection of Horses, under the patronage of the Royal House of Britain.
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.
Romania entered the area of interest of the Britons in the period it made preparations to join the EU. Representatives of the League made evaluation visits and found that many horses are lame because of bad shoes, and their harnesses are maladjusted or improvised.
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.

The Romanians are very proud with what they have done at Sinca Noua. "We have learnt a lot of new things, but we need to learn more. He who believes this is a piece of cake, is wrong, " said Ion Ungureanu, from Buzau, southern Romania.
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.
The initiative needs financial support worth one million pounds (1.85 million euros). In Britain, the League owns four farms focusing on the rehabilitation of abused and neglected horses. Romania is the second European country where such courses take place, after Ukraine.
