The Humble Hoof offers:
- Consultations: I am always more than happy to come out and meet with you and your horse to evaluate lower limb movement and biomechanics, hoof health, and nutrition advice in regards to the hoof.
For online consultations, see here.
- Barefoot trimming: I believe in approaching each hoof as an individual when it comes to hoofcare, and will trim based on the horse’s biomechanics, workload, environment, and any pathology considerations (radiographic findings, conversations with your veterinarian, etc). I am passionate about keeping your horse comfortable while working to help them grow the healthiest feet possible. I am happy to take the time to build a relationship with your horse in order to make the trim as enjoyable as possible for them. The first trim will include a consultation (if not already done), and likely will be more conservative than following trims as we watch how each trim adjusts your horse’s movement and the biomechanics of the hoof. I like to keep a 4-6 week trim schedule to see progress, and may even suggest a shorter schedule for some rehabilitation cases.
- Lameness Rehabilitation Boarding: We offer track system rehab boarding for hoof-based lamenesses, for situations where horses may need more intensive rehab plans. For rehabilitation boarding, see here.
I am also able to apply Hoof Armor, which is a Kevlar-based epoxy used to prevent wear while building sole thickness. It does help with sole sensitivity in some horses.

- Red Horse Products: I am a dealer for Red Horse products, and will usually have inventory on me of various thrush products for sale, including Field Paste, Artimud, and Hoof Stuff (three of my favorites!). Ask me which I might recommend for your horse.
