Ruthie Thompson-Klein


Business name: Equine Balance Hoof Care
I emphasize hoof health in concert with overall equine wellness, looking for ways to get every horse thriving, not just surviving. I graduated Montana State University Horseshoeing School 2002 with an all-around farrier education. The real education began after graduation. After years of trimming/shoeing competitive and pleasure horses, I took a major detour into whole-horse hoof care, studying and applying the work of Jaime Jackson and Pete Ramey, among others. Applied and accepted for American Hoof Association and PHCP certification 2011.

Though no longer taking on clients, I am dedicated to Diet-Movement-Trim for every horse. I enjoy mentoring and teaching owner-trimmer beginning clinics and am willing to travel to your location to assist with your clients’ horses.

I charge $150 per day. Every level student is welcome, and I specialize with beginners. Lopez Island is located off the Northwest coast of Washington State near the Canadian border, so plan for travel days or an extended weekend. Get in touch and we can discuss details.
