NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation in & around Castle Combe

One of Wiltshire's true beauty spots, the delightful village of Castle Combe has been called "The prettiest village in England", and it remains a haven for artists, who come to paint the attractive cottages and peaceful riverside views. Castle Combe was the setting for the original Dr Doolittle film. It also has a very historic motor racing circuit, which hosts international events to this day. You could say that Castle Combe is an area of contrasts, based on that evidence. On one hand, the sleepy English village and on the other, the vibrant, international sporting arena.

Another facet of the area is agriculture. The land around Castle Combe is typical of the rolling Costwold landscape, with perfect looking trees and cattle grazing contentedly while painters paint and onlookers look on. Our own interest in the cattle is to ensure minimum lameness so we often visit farms in the Castle Combe area to provide:

The practical, hands on sessions cover all aspects of basic trimming as well as the use, care and maintenance of equipment. As you can see from the number of smiling faces in the group, these courses are also a lot of fun in a low pressure environment that encourages attendees to take part and get the most from their day.

For future training courses, keep an eye on our calendar page, or call us to arrange a coaching visit to your farm or group.
