Trimming

When I started trimming around 14 years ago, I was trimming my own horses, and 3 rescued ponies in Portobello. Barefoot certainly wasn't as popular then as it is today!

As a new kid on the block, most of the people who rang me, had horses with issues and thought they would try me as no one else would handle them. I got some real tricky ones! Some were so anxious and dangerous I had to do a few horsemanship sessions with them first, just to get them to the point I could safely handle their legs.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my trimming career to date, has been seeing those horses over time let go of their fear and anxiety and become docile and relaxed about having their feet trimmed. One big fella Lofty, was particularly sensitive and it took me a couple of hours to trim him the first time. Later on down the track I could trim him out in the paddock without even tying him up. There have been many like Lofty over the years, along with foals, young ones and some particularly troubled donkeys. It is nice to know that even as horses and owners move on, I have been able to give that horse confidence in having their feet trimmed, and it will help them through the rest their life :) :) :)
