If you’re interested in learning to trim your own horse, I would love to help! Contact me for details and a recommended tool list. This is customized to what you need – some people have already been trimming on their own and want a refresher, some clients want to learn how to do touch ups in between professional trims, and some clients want to learn how to do all their own hoofcare. I can also offer your resources for doing your own glue on shoes, there are several great options on the market now.

Farrier Support Session
This is a non-judgmental space for hoofcare providers to discuss your current business obstacles and frustrations. Sometimes it’s a surprise to find out what working for yourself really is like! There is a high rate of burnout in our industry. We can talk about whatever is on your mind for this session to ensure that you are running your business, rather than it running you.
Common topics can include: business advice, problem solving for difficult cases, avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue, taking care of your body, and practicing good boundaries at work.
This is also open to anyone working in the equine industry! Vets, trainers, grooms, stable hands, bodyworkers, etc. You are not alone.
