Tripod with seat 

The TWS is an essential tool for the farrier as it lengthens his working life, preventing the back pathologies so frequent in this profession. The TWS is addictive; the more you use it the more you need it.

The farrier submits his or her back to constant strain during the exercise of his profession. Year after year we overload our back, without previous warm up exercises or after-work stretching.

As a consequence sooner or later we all suffer from back pain, which at the very least keeps us from enjoying our work. Often we are obliged to submit to frequent check-ups with physiotherapists or osteopaths.

After many years of work and some excesses, my own back is not up to much anymore, as is probably the case for most of my contemporaries. This is the reason which made me look for a solution for the veterans amongst us and a means of prevention for the younger  colleagues against chronic back pain.

After studying the available farrier tools, like wheeled toolboxes and  various hoof stands, I found a farrier jack with a seat and a single leg, like a hunter’s seat. This tool does take your weight of your back, but you need to attach it with a harness and moving around the horse with it is not without complications. I then started developing and testing, with feedback from other farriers .

The tripod with (TWS) seat is a new farrier tool designed to alleviate the farriers back while shoeing horses.

It consists of a hoof stand, adjustable in height and with a rotating head which adapts to  the horse’s limb’s position.

A frame with two swivelling wheels, a seat for the farrier and a toolbox attached, allow a perfect positioning of the farrier during all the phases of shoeing the horse ( trimming, nailing, finishing) as the frame is attached with an original (and patented) system to the hoof stand. Thanks to this attachment, the frame with the seated farrier, can not only turn around the hoof stand and the horse’s limb, but also advance towards and back away from the stand.

The seat itself also swivels , relative to the frame,  allowing for the perfect farrier’s position even when working on the front limbs. The incorporated tool box keeps all tools below the seat at hand.

The main advantage of the TWS is that it allows the farrier to do his work while seated, saving his back, enabling him to work around the horse’s limb without having to move the horse. The horse can keep its limb resting on the static and stable hoof stand, which generally relaxes the horse during the shoeing. 

Thanks to the TWS one can do all the different shoeing procedures without straining the dorso-lumbar muscles.

IT ALLOWS VETERAN FARRIERS TO SHOE WITH THE EASE OF THEIR YOUTH, IT PERMITS THE YOUNG FARRIERS TO KEEP GOING TILL THEY ARE VETERANS!
