Farrier School: Master Blacksmith School From Kentucky Horseshoeing School 1999
I graduated Kentucky Horseshoeing School in 1999.I grew up working around horses my entire life.I always found it easy to understand horses were I paired my understanding of the horses anatomy and a little horsemanship a good fit.There began my evolution.I find my self forging steel but always learning about various ways to help horses stay sound. I have been a A.F.A. member since I graduated and attend clinics biannually. My mission is keeping horses sound.As a steward of the foot I treat every horse like its my own, putting your horses welfare, along with my safety, as priority number one. I hold a PA. track license enabling me to work on all race tracks in the state of Pennsylvania. I have shod horses Pa., MD., NJ.,and now Tn. I do all types but mostly hunters, dressage, 3-day eventer’s, polo, trail, and therapeutic work. Pour in pads, glue on’s and casting. in short there is not a problem I can’t fix, if not stabilize, till the foot grows.

Doug Mcmurdy has been my farrier for my horse for five years in Pennsylvania until recently moving to Tennessee. I miss him!! My horse came to me terrified of men and had severe trust issues with horrible feet. Doug was able to help my mare overcome her extreme fear along with balancing out her hooves. Doug always takes his time and makes sure his work is correct and done with accuracy and precision. His prices are very reasonable as well. He is great with babies along with experienced regulars. My current farrier can thank Doug for my horse's awesome feet now. :)
