I have been riding and spending time around horses for as long as I can remember, and in 2019 I discovered that I have a passion for hoof care and began an apprenticeship to learn barefoot trimming. I started pursuing as many educational opportunities as possible – including working with a few highly-knowledgeable hoof care providers in my area, studying Pete Ramey’s resources, and attending clinics with EponaMind and Paige Poss – which eventually led me to join PHCP and enter the certification program.

My trimming is individualized for each horse (and each hoof), and I take a whole horse approach – looking at each horse’s diet, environment, movement, and “job” to inform my trim and look for ways to improve hoof health and quality. I keep horses on a regular trimming schedule of 4-5 weeks. I am happy to work with your veterinarian on rehab and pathology cases (I am also an equine veterinary assistant part-time), and welcome clients looking to transition their horse(s) from shod to barefoot. I welcome all equines, including minis, ponies, drafts, mules and donkeys.

I serve mainly the East Bay area (Contra Costa and Alameda counties). My schedule is pretty full, so I am only taking new clients on a case-by-case basis, but you are still welcome to contact me as things can always change and I may have openings come up.

The best way to contact me is by text or phone call, and I try my best to respond within 1-2 business days. I will respond to emails, but prefer communicating by phone with new clients.
