My Education

My education journey started a couple years back when I started asking my hoof care provider a bunch of questions regarding hoof care, nutrition, and anything else equine related I could think of so I could better take care of my own horse.  

Those conversations lead me to PHCP where I am continuing my education.  Through PHCP, I am also mentoring with several outstanding hoof care practitioners around the US and gleaning from their years of experience and knowledge.

Education is a lifelong journey.  I fully believe that in order to succeed in any career field, we need to continue learning.  So, that's exactly what I am doing!
