MY CREDENTIALS




 
I have been a Certified Farrier through the B.W.F.A for over 15 years,
and have been a Farrier for over 20 years.
The B.W.F.A, or Brotherhood of Working Farriers Association, was originally formed on December 10, 1901. The B.W.F.A is the largest farrier association in the world, with farriers, horse owners, and those interested in the safety of horses, research, and farrier science.


 I specialize in doing a "Natural Barefoot Trim". I have studied several Natural Hoof Care Specialist of the years Thomas Teskey, Pete Ramey, Jamie Jackson, Dr. Hiltrud Strasser's and Gene Ovnicek. From these experts in the field of Natural Trimming methods. I have taken what I think is the most practical approach to taking care of a
Domesticated horse in today's environment.


I have worked also worked with Dr. Rick Redden a leading Equine Podiatrist in the United States. His work is 2nd to none in our industry.
We worked on a horse that was getting a 2nd tendononmy.
Dr. Redden was the leading vet that was consulted, I was the leading Farrier.
I was instructed by Dr. Redden on how to shoe
this horse for this procedure.
(I worked with him on this horse before I came into my
barefoot trimming techniques). The experience I gained from
talking with him was life learning.

  I have successfully worked with other vets as well. I especially recall  working with Dr. Callaghan from the University of Florida .
I assisted him in doing a tendononomy on a horse. Again the
information that I was able to draw from him was immeasurable to my career and to further learning about the whole horse and what I
a huge part I play in helping the horses stay sound!


  I have the experience to work with the Veterinarian if a horse has special needs like being Foundered, Navicular, or just treating a common Solar Abscess. I have worked side by side with Veterinarians in the past
having to help with administering tranquilizers to wild mustangs
that needed there hooves trimmed.

Being Reliable and Dependable is what you can expect out of me everyday! I spend a good amount of time continuing to educate myself and learn new techniques. I try to keep up with the latest research on Farrier Science. This helps me give the best quality service to each horse.

My slogan is to "Put balance back in to every step".
A sound horse makes every one happy....... Client, Horse, and Me!

   I try to have a up beat attitude every day when working with horses. One of the reasons I  got into horses was how it made me feel when being around them and playing with them. They really do help take the stress of everyday life away. They make me feel good inside when I'm around them everyday.......Its not just a job to me!!! I love what I do. If I can make a horse more comfortable when I'm done then, I have done my job.

   I like to have fun when I work. You will usually see me working with a smile on my face, cracking a joke or just poking fun at myself or YOU!!
I try to make
my visit to your barn/home a fun pleasant experience.



 

MY COMPANY PROFILE

I will employ the sum of MY training, experience, and ability in the
care of your horses' hooves with a focus on maintaining or restoring soundness and enhancing performance. I invest considerable resources
into continuing education and keeping MY practice current with the developing science of Farrier. I will gladly work with your trainer,
vet or other full-time horse care professionals for the good of your horses, and we will suggest that such professionals be consulted when appropriate.

            I will make every effort to stay on schedule and to arrive for
      appointments on time. I book my appointments in the A.M. or P.M.
         This gives us a better window to work with as far as time. I will
           attempt to call ahead if I'm running behind schedule, and I
          will give as much notice as possible should I have to cancel.  
 

  • I prefer to observe the horse in motion (walk & trot) prior to starting work (to evaluate way of going, needed corrections/lameness, etc.).
  • If your horse is too energetic, turn-out or lunging before we       arrive is recommended.
  • If we are working at feeding time, please feed your horse            before we begin.
  • I welcome questions & conversation.
  • If working on a mare with foal, please have the foal restrained     (halter & lead rope is fine).
  • I ask you that you maintain a regular trimming schedule.        Waiting  until your horse is past due for a trim, usually results in severely damaged feet, which reduces the quality of my work.
 



 I am a professional Certified Farrier through the B.W.F.A, this is what I do everyday! I have went to school and learned the latest techniques and continue to educate myself every year! My prices reflect my education. 
I received most of my Farrier and Horse training in Florida.

I look forward to meeting new clients and their horses. I will take the time with each horse to make sure all  four hooves are balanced, and the horse has a comfortable experience through out the process.

  A Certified Farrier is usually more knowledgeable than the non-certified Farrier. A Certified Farrier is held to higher standards and the quality of work is usually reflected in what we do.

   Balanced hooves are an essential part of your horses overall well being. When the hoof is balanced, the weight of the horse is evenly distributed over each hoof.
