Student Practitioners are not yet fully certified by 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.
Advanced Student Practitioners are Student Practitioners who have completed Independent Study and are in the advanced phase of the training program. They will have more experience than a Student Practitioner. They can do an excellent job caring for your horse’s hoof needs and are prepared to work on more difficult cases with the support of their Mentors and colleagues as they complete their training.
Practitioners are members who have completed their training and passed the final certification process.
Mentors are Certified PHCP Practitioners who have been approved as educators in our training program.

I have been trimming for 14 years, I love to teach and I love to study nutrition for horses. I do continued education as much as time allows but make myself attend two educational events a year minimum. I am an AHA member and have served on the Education Committee since it began.
I will be taking new clients till 2019 and then plan to reduce my trim load. I am best contacted by phone.
I charge $100.00 a day for mentorships plus a lodging fee if someone wants to stay with me.
