A good farrier will keep your horse’s feet balanced and functioning properly. Regular maintenance from a professional will keep the hoof flexible and resilient. It’s my job to maintain the hoof to keep proper foot and pastern angles for optimum mobility, performance and hoof health.
To ensure I’m the best person to help maintain your horse’ foot health I continue to study with both conventional farriers and barefoot trimmers.
American Farrier Journal
Besides trimming techniques I’ve also studied and can advise on other factors that contribute to your horse’ hoof health including: anatomy, nutrition, and environmental factors, as well as hoof rehabilitation (including founder and navicular).
My 10+ years of experience and continued study mean I can offer you a holistic and complete farrier service. I can work with you to not only maintain your horse’ feet but also assist with preventative and restorative hoof care.
Providing practical hoof care is just one part of the Winning Touch Service. My training as a farrier is due in large part, to my own horse Nitro. Long story short, his challenging nature required patient and persistent care. I struggled to find that for him so I took it upon my self to train as a professional farrier and holistic care provider.
I love what I do but my greatest reward is hearing that my clients appreciate the patience and care I put in to providing my farrier services. That’s especially true for challenging or highly-strung horses.
I provide the service I would want for my own horse.
