Erin prefers for horses to be barefoot if they can cope. Some horses can’t due to the environment they live in and/or how much they are being ridden. Other elements such as conformation, injury management or high level performance horses, shoeing has a place.
Most horses can do 6-8km barefoot in 24hrs on soft ground. Any more than that, the horse needs protection.
Erin can measure and fit hoof boots, use casting and gluing techniques or fit shoes to ensure your horses foot is protected and feels comfortable as foot pain can impact their quality of life.
Erin has a genuine love of horses and will always be patient and kind to your horse. Horse welfare is very important to Erin and it’s important to remember, no horse should be foot sore or lame after hoof care.
Erin has a state of the art purpose built farrier van and only uses high quality products to maximise the comfort of your horse.
Having a competitive horse riding career before becoming a farrier, gives Erin a balanced and knowledgeable approach to your horse both as a Horseman and Farrier.
You will see an improvement in your horses’ hooves by having Erin as your hoof care provider.
