I began my Horseshoeing career in 1985 when I shod my first horse unassisted and unsupervised
My passion for Hoof Care drives me to continue my Education so I can advance my knowledge and skills.
Education and Achievements
I am also a member of the following Association
Active Board member of Equine Soundness Professionals

Being involved with these associations help me to advance my knowledge and skills and to make sure I am up with the latest scientific information and advances in Farriery Science
Each year I try to attend as many Clinics, webinars and Conferences throughout the world as possible
Doing this offers me the latest scientific information & research on topics, such as Nutrition, Rider Influence, Surface Conditions impact, Locomotion, Muscle & Joint problems and all things related to the Horse, Limb and Hoof.
While I am relatively new to the Hoof Care world, my love of horses has existed since an early age.
I have a desire to excel at my newfound Profession for the betterment of the Horse.
