Why a Professional Farrier?

Horse's hooves grow continuously, and need to be trimmed every six to eight weeks to keep them in proper shape. Trimming is a job for a trained farrier.
An inexperienced person can easily trim the hoof wall too short or pare too much sole, causing the horse to be sore. More importantly, the hoof must be balanced precisely to the horse's natural way of going or may end up lame. The skill required to keep a hoof properly balanced takes a lot of training and practice to develop.

Very Reliable!
