Old school sensibilities meet state of the art design.
Fortunately, the fellows I apprenticed with were students of design. They encouraged me to consider every facet of the business of shoeing horses from a design perspective. Concerning shoeing rigs, I always found it interesting that they had almost identicle set ups, which happened to be very different from just about all other setups. The idea was simplicity. Everything should be setup to reduce movement around the truck yet allow versatility in creating modifications to help the horses.
My passion of farriery has had me spend much of the last 25 years thinking about the design of my shoeing rig. What I had was a fully functioning old school system. What I have now, seems to be true state of the art efficency. I’m very excited to be able to help horses even more effectively, after far too long a wait.
