Video Break: Farrier Abby Bunyard Breaks Glass Ceilings

You know we love a good girl power story here at EN! In this newest video from the FEI’s RIDE series, presented by Longines, we get to meet farrier Abby Bunyard who knew from the tender age of 6 that shoeing horses was her dream career.

But even with knowing from such a young age what she wanted to be when she grew up, she still had to overcome some immerse hurdles in order to break into the male-dominated industry. Hear from Abby how one mentor risked “career suicide” by hiring her and how she’s since made her way to the verge of being named the first female president of the British Farrier and Blacksmiths Association. Plus, she’s got some great advice for girls trying to enter an industry where they feel unwelcomed.
