Balanced Hoof Care for Performance & Rehabilitation
Specializing in FOUNDER and LAMENESS Recovery
A balanced trim can mean the difference between “acceptable” and EXCEPTIONAL for your horse!
The most effective method of healing and maintaining healthy hooves involves working with—and influencing—the balance of the body and the hooves' natural growth. New growth follows old growth. Hoof shape, environmental diversity, and movement all influence hoof growth and function. Balanced hooves not only help balance a horse's body, but absorb shock, dissipate concussion, provide traction, and circulate blood—all important factors for healthy growth.
Problems in the hooves often manifest as issues with the body (and vice-versa). Well-balanced hooves, as well as a holistic approach to equine husbandry, can prevent—and often correct—these issues.
Founder, laminitis, navicular, “mystery” lameness, and other pathological cases are welcome. Current x-rays (lateral and DP views) are recommended in these cases.
I am currently working out of Winston-Salem, NC. Most of my clients are located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. Generally, if expenses are covered, I will consider traveling to your location. Services and fees can be found here.
