Approach

Rick applies his combined education and horsemanship skills to the art and science of balancing the equine structure from the hoof up. Before beginning work on your horse, Rick welcomes the opportunity to consult with you, your vet and other equine health care providers to understand your horse and your goals. As a horseman, Rick spends time getting to know your horse before beginning work. Rick delivers a pleasant experience for both horse and owner and delivers exceptional results.


Resources

When you work with Pampered Hoof, you access years of experience and expertise through our network of equine professionals. Rick regularly consults and leverages the expertise of best in class vets, farriers, trainers and therapists and educators. 


Continuing Education

Rick continuously expands his knowledge and skills through regular review of research, cutting edge technology, continuing education, and seminars through various industry experts like the National Farrier Research Center and American Farrier Association. Rick works regularly with a trainer to continuously improve his horsemanship.


Rick also has three horses of his own and a horse-crazy wife who all provide their own version of equine education every day!
