Providing resources to the Colorado horse community  

By Linda Browneller, American Farrier Association, Certified Journeyman Farrier  

Welcome to the farrier resource site.

Colorado is a demanding climate for the health and soundness of our equine friends. Alternating wet and dry periods, cold temperatures, and the lushness of the pastures in Spring require us to pay close attention to hoof and leg issues.

This website provides resources for horse owners and farriers including clinics, mentoring, and specialized training.

On-site clinics Clinics and individual coaching offer an exceptional means of delivering valuable hoof and leg information to horse owners and farriers.

Ongoing research into issues such as laminitis (founder) and navicular provide new ways to help prevent and treat these problems.

On the Training, Resources, and Assistance link you will find:
For horse owners:
  • Educational clinics on horse hoof issues and problems
  • Help in finding a farrier
  • Coaching on ways to trim your own horses hooves
  • Aids to know when to call an expert on hoof and leg problems
For farriers:
  • One-on-one coaching and mentoring
  • Help with certification tests
  • Sources for additional and specialty training
