Please send a message through my website to contact me. I am no longer servicing Illinois or surrounding areas. I am only training owners to trim their own horses via online courses and coaching at this time.
I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor's in Animal Science with nutrition as my main focus in 2012. I studied the physiology and anatomy of horses while I worked for and managed the university horse farm. During this time I became a certified barefoot trimmer with emphasis on navicular and founder rehab through Ida Hammer studying the methods of Pete Ramey. During my apprenticeship I trimmed over 3,000 hooves covering all types of lamenesses founder, whiteline disease and thrush problems.
I have since found a better way of trimming which targets run forward/crushed low heels and works to restore them. This increases the soundness of the horse drastically and the thickness of the sole. It also increases the size of the hoof and therefore the stability of the horse.
The keys to success with barefoot horses are lots of exercise (I mean lots), diet, environment and excellent, intelligent hoof care.
