My approach to farrier work.

My approach to shoeing every horse is simple: Every horse is different, there are things that I can change and there are things that I cannot. I try to treat each case with care and undivided attention.


Working with such variables as conformation and a horse’s past history, I work to keep the horse sound and the rider safe.


I believe in the basics of horseshoeing and although I am educated in "new" ideas I have found that keeping things as simple as possible will usually produce the best results.


There is no horse that I won't work on at least once. I understand that some horses may have little or no training. Or worse may have come from a neglected life style. Please consider my personal safety when working on your horses. I will refuse to work on a horse that is uncontrollable or is in an unsafe working environment.


Due to safety concerns I do not work on mules & draft horses.
