Farrier service

In 2005, we asked a very basic question about our horses: “Why did they need shoes?” In the end, we decided the answer was “They don’t.” For many years, we relied on hoof boots and kept our horses barefoot. In 2017, Rob began shoeing but is now retired from working as a farrier.

Rob is a hoof boot dealer for both Easy Care and Renegades and a stockist for Scoot Boots!  If you would like to schedule a boot fitting, Email or call/text (860-884-0110) to schedule an appointment.  Check out all of our Equine Products.

Here is a very good article that summarizes what we believe about barefoot horses: http://www.thehorseshoof.com/pdf_articles/BarefootParadigm.pdf.

Here is another about barefoot performance horses http://www.easycareinc.com/education/articles/eventing_barefoot.aspx.

  1. After having horses for over 40 years, I am used to seeing horses with shoes. Rob has opened my eyes to barefoot horses. He has only trimmed our horses one time since their shoes have come off, but I immediately noticed the freedom in their movement. They look great! So glad to have Rob trimming our horses in his busy schedule!
