Equine Balance Hoof Care
Location: Lopez Island, WA (US)
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 with an all-around farrier education, but the real education began afterwards. 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 Jackson, Ramey and Bowker, among others. American Hoof Association and PHCP certification attained 2011.
Though no longer taking on clients, I am dedicated to Diet-Movement-Trim for every horse. I enjoy mentoring students of the horse, and teaching owner-trimmer beginning clinics. I will 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 travel days or an extended weekend. Rustic tiny-cabin housing available. Get in touch and we’ll discuss details.
