This news item is about: After over 100 years in existence, the Cornell Farrier Program has admitted its first all-women class. In early January, three women walked through the farrier shop doors, started up the forge, and got to work. Paige Maxxam, Kahlan Schramm, and Kerry Spain will complete the program in April and use their training to enter as apprentices into a field where skilled workers are in high demand. “I had people back home asking me to work on their horse as soon as they found out I was coming to Cornell,” says Schramm.
