One of the first things people ask me about being a farrier is what method I use, and my answer is…

“Whatever works best for the horse and owner.”

Much of the time that means an individualized natural balance hoof trim, either with shoes or barefoot. Those are the basics and the rest depends on not just each horse, but each hoof.
I have farrier and barefoot trim training across many disciplines, and familiarity with a variety of approaches, from Gene Ovnicek and Pete Ramey, to Lyn Clarke. I attend clinics regularly to keep up on the latest techniques and to learn more about what works best for the individual horse.

I’ve studied horse anatomy in depth, and apply that knowledge to every hoof I pick up.
