The digital cushion and its relationship with the external hoof
Jay Tovey FWCF
Various methods of measuring the depth of the digital cushion (DC) to an assumed external reference point above the heel bulb are being used in a belief that different farriery or trimming techniques can alter the depth, health and composition of the DC and thus improve the strength and depth of the horn in the heel area.
Jay qualified in 1996 and has been competing in farriery competitions since he was an apprentice. He has represented England as an apprentice and also as a qualified farrier competing at many international competitions all over the world. He became a Worshipful Company of Farriers judge in 2008 and was on the farriery team at the London Olympics 2012. He passed the AWCF in 2013 and then went on to pass the highest exam possible, the FWCF in 2017. In 2018 he was also appointed as a WCF examiner. Jay is passionate about farriery education and runs his own farriery tuition business and is also a tutor for BFBA’s AWCF and FWCF course.
