While looking for a consistent way to care for my barefoot horse's feet, I took the opportunity to attend the Oregon School of Natural Hoof Trimming, where I
studied with Cheryl Hendersen in 2011.
While I was at the school I learned about the Abrasive Trim. I then met founder of the Softouch Natural Hoof Care method, Phil Morarre. I have been fortunate to study with Morarre in various places around the country and I continue to learn from him online and with telephone contact.
I trim and learn wherever I can. Hoof care is about balancing nutrition, exercise, environment and equine social life, as well as the actual trimming of the hoof.
One of the Phil Morarre clinics I attended offered some interesting hoof challenges. I wrote an article about the clinic, published in The Horse's Hoof magazine.
I've been studying privately with Anthony Madaia
and aspire to attend the
Hoof and Body School
