Kevin’s routine shoeing services include:
- Basic trim
- 2 shoes
- 4 shoes
Kevin also offers the following specialized services:
- Young Horses: Ideally, young horses should start to be “trimmed” around 1 month of age and should be checked every 6 weeks throughout their youth. It’s important for young horses to be trimmed on a regular basis early on in their lives, as it builds the correct foundation for them to grow on.
- Glue-On Shoes: For horses that are constantly losing shoes, and consequently, losing hoof wall, it can become difficult to nail on shoes without further damaging the hoof (especially if the horse pulls their shoes). Glue-on shoes are often the perfect solution to this problem. Oftentimes, horses will only need a few shoeing with glue-ons and then be fine for traditional shoes.
- Therapeutic/Corrective: Does your horse have ringbone? Navicular? Or another chronic issue? I’m happy to work with your vet to create a shoeing program to keep your horse sound, happy and working.
Prices vary depending on number of horses and distance traveled.
