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 certified as a Barefoot Trimmer by the Equine Lameness Prevention Organization in Penrose, CO. I strive to keep learning all the time from other trimmers, from my clients, and - above all - from the horses themselves.
