Horses have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I have experience in many disciplines throughout my years as an equestrian: dressage, hunters, jumpers, trail riding, combined driving, and barrel racing, but my passion for the last 8 years has been eventing. Regardless of what you do with your horse, I am happy to work with you to best serve your horse's hoof needs in whatever discipline you are in.
Experience is important but it should always be backed by education. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Animal Science from the University of Connecticut and am a Certified Applied Whole Horse Hoof-Care Trimmer from Mackinaw Dells. I am always happy to explain what I am doing and teach all I can about hoof care and how all of the different facets of horse care tie into it.
My hope and philosophy is this: I want to take all of the experience and knowledge I have accumulated throughout the years to be able to help your horse stay sound, happy and healthy for years to come!
- Balanced barefoot trimming
I offer trimming for the whole family and am happy to work with your horses, ponies, minis, donkeys, goats, and small animal nails (dogs, rabbits, etc)!
Nothing affects a horse's hoof as much as its diet. I believe horses are healthiest on a forage based diet with a good vitamin/mineral supplement (California Trace, Vermont Blend, KIS Trace, etc) to balance out what their body needs to build and maintain a solid hoof. I'm happy to work with you and develop a healthy diet plan for your horse to build a stronger and healthier hoof!

Looking to keep your horse barefoot but need a little more hoof protection? Let me know if you'd like to do a boot fitting! Out of the dozens of hoof boots I have tried or checked out, Flex Hoof Boots are my absolute favorite. They are easy to put on, super flexible, comfortable (no rubbing), low profile, and come in lots of different colors.
