My schedule in PA April 27 to May 11 is pretty much filled up, although there may be a couple
of corners left (no weekend times) where I could squeeze in another appointment or two.
My next visit north will be approximately the last week of June/first week of July.
Follow the Hoof
My aim is to balance the foot by trimming according to the landmarks of the sole and to situate breakover in the most advantageous position given the current condition of the hoof. "Correct angles" and true concavity cannot be produced by the trimmer but only by the hoof itself as it grows in response to its environment, with the aid of trimming to supply what is lacking in wear and tear. I began trimming in 2008 - beginning with my own four horses as I was not satisfied with the pasture trim they were receiving at the time. I'm a member of the Equine Lameness Prevention Organization, and my main trimming inspiration is Gene Ovnicek. However, I strive to keep learning all the time from other trimmers, from my clients, and - above all - from the horses themselves.
