Full Consultation - $100 ($130 if your horse needs de-shoeing)
This includes a balanced set up trim, discussion of possible changes to the horses’ diet, biomechanics, assessing body pain / tension / restrictions in the range of motion in each limb, hoof health and balance as well as gentle, non-invasive  techniques to help release tension and holding patterns that are restricting functional limb movement and loading.
If appropriate this consultation may also include hoof boot advice, dental, saddle and bit assessment, riding, groundwork exercises and a program of simple release techniques may also be offered if the owner wants to help increase the overall health potential of the horse or donkey.
Please note that this is not intended to replace veterinary advice. If your horse has a medical problem, contact your vet.

Trimming - $50-$60 - varies by area, please email for more information.
Please ensure your horse or donkey has a reasonable level of handling / training before you contact me for trimming and that you are feeding magnesium and a toxin binder if needed to keep your horse in a calm, sensible state of mind.
Areas - covered Paeroa, Thames, Hauraki Plains, Waihi, Katikati, Hamilton, Cambridge, Morrinsville

Email Consultation - $50
If you live outside of the area that I trim in I am happy to do email consultations if you need extra advice on hoof related issues but please understand that I am not a vet and do not diagnose problems.
I can usually make some suggestions to improve the situation for the individual and I may be able to refer you on to someone in your area who can help.
You will need to email photos and any extra information that you think is important and I will set up a time for you to ring me so that I can go over anything else that seems important

Equine Therapy - Price varies by location
I use a combination of Myofascial Release, Masterson Method, Acupressure, Equine Unwinding, Ortho-Bionomy, Homeopathy and Bach Flower Remedies.
Therapy sessions focus on areas of restriction that can be inhibiting ease of motion and are an addition to balanced natural hoof care. I do not treat shod horses but if you are considering a transition for your horse from shod to barefoot then you can contact me for supportive equine therapy or I may be able to put you in touch with a good equine therapist in your area who has an appreciation of the benefits of natural hoof care.
