I’m a professional farrier and trainer currently residing in Maple Plain MN. Before deciding to pursue Horseshoeing in my career I trained horses full time in Nebraska, Georgia, and Minnesota. I am currently much more limited on how many training horses or students I will take into my program but do have occasional openings for the right match.
I’ve worked and studied under three different trainers over the years. The first working with “problem” horses, rank horses, and horses that had been deemed dangerous for most people. I also worked for Jason English Show Horses as an assistant trainer, starting colts and preparing them to show as far as AQHA World, NSBA World, AQHA Congress, etc. in Western pleasure, Hunter under saddle, trail, Horsemanship, all around, and ranch pleasure. Multiple horses I trained went on to become AQHA world and Congress title winners. Working in Nebraska, I started colts full time for Arrow A Ranch, and raised and trained barrel horses, rope horses, and all around ranch horses. Multiple of which are currently competing at a pro level.
I offer honesty and professionalism. The care of and best interest of the horse are my number one priority in teaching both horse and rider.
I currently offer hourly sessions with horse and rider, start colts, start horses in the above stated disaplines, show and rodeo horses, and work with ‘troubled’ or problem horses.
