Providing resources to the Colorado horse community  

By Linda Browneller, American Farrier Association, Certified Journeyman Farrier  

Educating yourself is the number one way to
insure your horse and horses under your care are getting the best hoof care available.

For horse owners

Some of the most important topics I cover with individual horse owners are:

  • Can I learn about trimming and shoeing my own horses?
  • Can my horse go barefoot?
  • Why do horses need to be shod and/or trimmed?
  • Recognize proper trimming/shoeing.
  • Critical hoof, foot, and leg care.
  • Is thrush a real problem?
  • Pulling a shoe.
  • Replacing a lost shoe.
  • Use of hoof boots.
