Farrier Services at Your Stable
Farriery is both a science and an art
I am available to provide different services. I care about your horse's feet; whether that is to try and improve their performance, and to keep healthy. The therapeutic farriery is also a competence - if we work as a team, along with the vet and the owner, good results can be achieved. Communication is key.
I shoe a variety of performance horses, from thoroughbred, trotter, field hunters and jumpers, to dressage, eventers and pleasure horses.
Physiological trimming depends on the hoof, balance, age, activity and the environment.
A clever shoeing is not just a nail in a shoe, improving the comfort and locomotion of the horse is the goal. We need to remember any support will change the horse's biomechanics. After careful observation and gait assessment, my aim is to improve performance, fix injuries and to maintain healthy locomotor apparatus.Clever shoeing is a holistic approach used to provide the best care for horses.The type of shoe depends on the activity, where it's walking, the conformation and the horn quality. The shoe can be fixed with nails or glue, and can be made from aluminium, iron or synthetic material.
If you need any courses, you can contact me and I can arrange something in relation to your enquiry. With 22 years experience, I can certainly be of help.
