I come by the farrier trade honestly. The son of a Master Farrier dad and a professional trainer & coach mom I was literally born into the business. My younger brother John is also a farrier. Some days will find us working together and some days apart.
I grew up travelling to horse-shoeing competitions and horse shows with my parents and so have grown to appreciate the benefit of competition and professional upgrading as something that motivates me to learn and improve my skills. My farrier trade isn’t just a job, to me it’s a way of life.
I currently hold professional memberships with the Western Canadian Farrier’s Association and the American Farrier’s Association. I am working towards completing my Journeyman’s certification through the AFA which is a long and difficult process. In addition to my daily work, I attend several professional workshops and clinics each year throughout North America so I can bring the best, most up to date, hoof care and best practices to my clientele. For enjoyment and as a professional motivator, I compete in horse shoeing and blacksmithing competitions, often held as part of the above mentioned clinics and workshops.
I currently live in Abbotsford, British Columbia, although my shoeing clientele range throughout the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver area. If you are interested in becoming a client, feel free to call or text me at (604) 855-8635 to discuss or zap me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
