I was a practicing vet for 30 years. An interest in laminitis expanded to become a passion for researching and discovering all I could about all aspects of horses’ feet (2002). In 2008, I sold my vet practice and started to trim horses’ feet while continuing my research. For the past four years, I worked as a barefoot trimmer in Southern California, and will be continuing with this now I have returned ‘home’ to south west Scotland. I am the author of ‘Understanding the Horse’s Feet’ – published Crowood Press 2013.





Area Covered

Routine trimming southern Scotland (northern England). Consultation / second opinion throughout UK

Further Education

I have attended over 25 international vet/farrier conferences since 2002, as well as conferences and meetings in the UK. I have been a speaker in the UK, Holland and the USA.
