Erin prefers for horses to be barefoot if they can cope. Some horses can’t due to the environment they live in and how much they are being ridden. Other elements such as conformation or injury management or when high performance is needed, shoeing has a place. Most horses can do 6-8km barefoot in 24hrs on soft ground. Any more than that, then 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. Every horse is treated as an individual and care taken to ensure your horse has an enjoyable experience receiving foot care with every horses feet receiving a fresh coat of hoof dressing after each appointment. Erin is well presented in uniform and has a start of the art purpose built farrier van.
