At the age of 13 years old I got my first horse Kizzy. I was so excited to get out competing and having fun. But sadly she was diagnosed with navicular just 6 months later. She was put on box rest and hence my farrier recommended we just removed her shoes.
The changes to the back of her foot were remarkable, each time the farrier came he would take measurements and comment on how much her feet were improving and she gradually became sound again. This is where my passion for barefoot began.
My young family and I moved to the Isle of Mull in 2005 and in 2011 horses came back into my life.
I met my fantastic colleague Bonny Mealand who came to trim a highland mare we had on loan. Her passion inspired me to take up a career in Equine Podiatry, hence starting the EPA diploma course in 2012.
Horses amaze me with their resilience, if we take the time to listen they will tell us all. I don’t have all the answers, but together we can work it out.
