PHCP Practitioners

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 began my hoof care career as a conventional farrier over thirty years ago. In 2006, with the prompting of a client, I began to explore the benefits of barefoot rehabilitation. I enrolled in and completed the AANHCP training program. In 2007, I was certified by the American Hoof Association.

I currently maintain a full time trimming schedule and conduct clinics on barefoot trimming/rehabilitation and hoof protection.  I use boots, pads, Equicast, and glue on boots for rehabilitation cases.

Currently I have a waiting list for new clients. The best way to reach me is by text message or phone call and leave a voicemail.


For students looking to do a mentorship, I charge $150 per day. I  teach all levels of students from beginner on up. I can adjust the schedule to fit the situation.  Call me and we can work out the details.
