Sometime in 2021, after receiving certification in the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method, I plan to open Moshiach's Donkey, my equine Gestalt coaching practice. My horses and I will be offering Gestalt coaching, partnering together to offer experiences which will allow clients to find insight and inner guidance concerning the many and various questions which are pressing on their minds and hearts. I will be continuing to trim hoofs as well! If you would like to receive my short pamphlet Ten Steps to a Better Relationship with Your Horse, click on the link below, and I will send you a free PDF copy.
I am continuing to work during the COVID crisis. While weather permits working outdoors, I don't believe there is a need for masks. However, if weather necessitates working inside, I require the handler to wear a mask, and I will wear one also if that is preferred. Remote payment (Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, or mailed check) is preferred at this time.
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 continuing education workshops, from other trimmers, from my clients, and - above all - from the horses themselves.
