Farrier Services success stories

We have worked on many difficult cases here. The case of Trendy, a bomb proof Quarter Horse mare stands out. Trendy has been suffering from lameness for 2 years. She came to Cornell for an evaluation. With the help of an MRI imaging study, we found the exact cause, which helped guide the shoeing solution. After proper shoeing, she began using an even and comfortable gait and was able to return home, where she was used for young children to ride.

We also see many chronic laminitis horses that we are able return to regular work. Imbalanced horses with high-low syndrome frequently come to us for consultations. These horses continue to use our services because the riders like our results.

We specialize in the many types of glue on shoes for therapy or performance. We are able to provide hoof protection and support without nailing into previously damaged hooves.
