PHCP Practitioners

A Student Practitioner is not yet fully certified by the PHCP. With the support of their mentors and colleagues, they can do an excellent job caring for your horse’s hoof needs, as they complete their training. As always, when choosing any hoof care professional, it is best to ask for recommendations.

Profile

I am a native of southern Idaho and did time in California, Missouri, Wisconsin and Utah, in pursuit of college degrees and work as a Plant Disease Diagnostician. My husband and I finally landed on a small farm in northern Idaho and are still raising a family of two sons and a daughter. I’ve always had an aversion to horseshoes but saw them as a necessary evil until I was introduced to barefoot trimming in 2004. Due to living in places with no competent barefoot practitioners, I was forced to learn to trim for myself, the hard way, with my own horses as victims. They’re all still standing! I quit my job at Washington State University to study for certification with PHCP in early 2015 and I continue to learn amazing things. This path is easily as strenuous mentally as was my Master’s degree.

May be available to travel to Orofino, Nez Perce, Grangeville and St. Maries in Idaho, and southeast Washington if there is enough demand.
