      Successful Completion of Horseshoeing Course at Cal Poly Pomona in 1989.

I have been shoeing horses full-time for over 26 years in Arizona and California, proudly catering to the most discriminating clientele in pleasure and performance disciplines. In 1989 I enrolled in the Farrier Course at Cal Poly Pomona. I opened Doug Butler’s book “Principles of Horseshoeing” and was instantly absorbed by the intricacies and anatomy of the equine foot. Since that time I have been involved with continuing education and have participated in clinics, courses, and competitions across the United States.

As a member of the American Farriers Association (AFA) and a Certified Journeyman Farrier, I provide craftsmanship, dependability, knowledge and care to the ever-changing needs of your equine athlete. I have extensive experience dealing with therapeutics and issues of gait fault, in addition to the shoeing of hunter/jumpers, dressage and gaited horses. I am dedicated to providing exceptional service to you and your horse. I offer a complete farrier service to achieve and maintain your horse’s performance, comfort and soundness. I gladly work on all breeds and tailor my services to your horse’s disciplines and requirements.
