Are you in search of a hoof care professional with exceptional experience in pathology treatment, hoof rehabilitation, and balanced trimming to the internal arch?
Look no further!
Hill City Equine Hoof Care wants to help you and your horses achieve your dreams by starting from the ground up. There's a common saying,
"No Hoof, No Horse."
If your horse does not have the firm foundation of a balanced trim, the reciprocal effects will travel upwards through the distal limb putting undue torque on joints, stress on tendons and ligaments, and strain on muscles.

I have over 12 years of horse experience, including work with rescues, drafts, young horses, miniatures, blind horses, donkeys, and mini donkeys.
My work with hoof care started in 2009 and I graduated from the Institute of Applied Equine Podiatry in 2012. Since that time, I have worked with several laminitis, founder, and navicular cases, as well as many other hoof deformities and problems.
In 2013 I started the advanced, second level courses through the Institute of Applied Equine Podiatry which cover Radiograph prescriptions, Deformed Hoof Syndrome, Rehabilitation treatments, every hoof pathology from Black Hole Seedy Toe to Navicular Disease, and high performance horses. I graduated Second Level in December of 2015 with an Advanced Degree of Applied Equine Podiatry - becoming one of four advanced graduates in all of North America.
I have also taken 4 equine nutrition courses that cover Equine IR, Cushings Disease, arthritis and lameness, and nutrition as a therapy.
I am a Level 2 graduate of Parelli Natural Horsemanship and have spent the past five years studying natural horsemanship under such teachers as Buck Brannaman, Martin Black, and Mark Rashid.
My greatest satisfaction comes from helping a lame horse to go sound and a sound one to do his job with comfort. God has blessed me with a gift of helping horses and horse owners and I give Him all the glory every day.
