More Information:
I am not tied to any one trimming or shoeing technique or line of thought. I study all trimming and shoeing theories I can find. I have experimented, and extracted positives and negatives from all of the theories on hoof care. I do what I believe to be best for the HORSE first and foremost and will not compromise the overall health of the horse for performance.

I value continued learning and evolution of my skill and knowledge through practice and study. I attend regular continuing education events and clinics, as well as read research and literature to attain a better understanding of the biomechanics of the the equine system.
