Practitioner, Mentor

My journey into hoof care started in 2002. My OTTB, TJ, had poor quality hoof walls, thin soles, and could not hold a shoe for over five weeks. After consulting with my farrier, we tried glue on shoes. On the second set, one shoe broke at the quarters. I decided to pull his shoes, immerse myself into learning about hoof care and help him grow quality hooves.

April 2006 I attended a Pete Ramey hoof care clinic in Jacksonville, Oregon, that same year I started trimming for clients. Hoof care is a package, it’s not just the trim, it encompasses balanced nutrition, lots of movement, a clean environment and balanced trimming every 3-6 (max) weeks. The use of hoof boots, the modern day shoe, is an important part of hoof care.

2009 I joined PHCP and in 2011 became a Pacific Hoof Care Practitioner (PHCP).

2012 I was accepted as an American Hoof Care Association Member and became a PHCP Mentor

2014 and 2015 I co-hosted Pete Ramey workshops at our facility. Continuing education is important and I believe we are the student, the horse is our teacher. Nutrition and rehabilitation are areas of special interest. In addition to trimming, I also sell California Trace minerals and EasyCare hoof boots.

Along with being a hoof care practitioner, and mentor, I am also a horsemanship trainer, having audited and ridden in multiple clinics with Buck Brannaman. I’m currently a trainee teacher in the Philippe Karl School of Légèreté, classical dressage training program.

I’m currently fully booked, however I occasionally have an opening.   You’re welcome to contact me.

Email is the best way to reach me, but you can also reach me via phone or text.

For students looking to do a mentorship, the charge is $175 per day; $100 is paid by the student, and $75 is paid by a PHCP stipend. I enjoy teaching every level of student and I have access to a variety of horses, including my own, so we have plenty of horses to teach us.
