About Pete

A lifelong horseman and tie-down roper in the International Professional Rodeo Association, Pete knows firsthand of the rigorous demands placed upon today’s upper-level equine athletes.  And given the fact that a substantial amount of equine lamenesses are hoof-related, the significance of consistent, well-applied farriery should never be overlooked.


His philosophy when shoeing horses is to keep things as simple as possible, believing that the sound basics of maintaining a balanced, healthy hoof followed by a properly fitted shoe with adequate length and expansion will not only optimize function of the foot, but will also aid in support of the limb and soft tissue structures above it.


In addition to working primarily on sport horses, Pete greatly enjoys devoting his time and knowledge to working on complex therapeutic cases which involve creative thinking and collaboration with other equine professionals, as he believes it will only help to further his own education to better serve the horses he works on.


He greatly appreciates each and every client and considers himself lucky to have had the opportunity to work on some of the country’s top hunters and jumpers, including countless Grand Prix and Derby winners as well as the 2014 USEF Horse of the Year (3’3″ AOs 18-35).
