We Put Your Needs First



Shoes will be applied to aid in correction, protection, and traction. Horse shoes will be picked by Dustin specifically for your horses confirmation, gait, and performance needs. Dustin will then trim the hoof to appease medial lateral and toe heel balance addressing any existing flaring, then the shoe will be applied and dressed with a polish finish. This will allow for a optimal fit and merge between the hoof and the shoe which will create maximum comfort and performance for the guaranteed period of 6 weeks. Common question that we receive are, Do shoes hurt my horse? Do the shoes have to be pulled for winter? Will hot setting shoes hurt the hoof? The correct nailing and application of a horse shoe should be a pain free process as the horn that the nails are penetrating is non sensitive. Hot setting must be done by an experienced hoof care professional and when it is performed correctly can really be a game changer for an ideal merge between the steel and the hoof, what happens when a farrier hot sets the shoe is there is a burning of the non sensitive horn ( hoof wall) to the top side of the shoe which will level the hoof structure and the shoe pain free allowing the hoof and steel to merge. Being based in Colorado snow is an annual occurrence so no shoes nor performance have to be put on hold for the winter we offer snow rims and pads added to shoes and other traction devices which allow the equine to avoid the build up of ice in their shoes or slipping on slick snowy surfaces allowing you and your horse to stay active during the snowy months.  Dustin has experience with a variety of applications to best fit the needs of the individual horse. all horses are treated as an individual so that their needs can each be individually met.  Our options for this package are our basic package that does not include our 6 week promise prices are 140 full set and 120 half Our performance package which includes a 2 trip shoe replacement promise and performance finish prices are $160 and $130 for a half set. All packages come standard with a hot set unless requested as cold setting is an option. All prices are based on a sound quarter horse, that has been on a regular 8 week schedule. These prices include a thrush treatment and polish finish. Corrective and therapeutic shoeing is extra. Pads 20/40$ Borrium 50$ clips 30$ epoxy repair 20$ 



Domestication of the equine has increased the workload and demand put on the hoof structures while as a mustang they did not have an added 80 to 100 pounds to carry while maneuvering at a walk, trot and canter. Even with these added demands of domestication there still are horses that can maintain while being barefoot. Dustin prefers the barefoot trim on a horse that can upkeep with their performance demands and hoof growth. Dustin’s barefoot trims are conservative, He has discovered that less is more when it comes to the barefoot horse. Dustin prefers to have ample sole depth and hoof wall to support the weight of the horse and the sensitive structures under the hoof allowing the horse to be more comfortable. The hoof will be trimmed to balance toe, heel, medial, lateral and addressing any abnormalities in the outer wall. This means the horse’s hoof structures will remain optimal for any added demands that may occur and the point of break over will remain in the ideal location based on the horses unique conformation leaving them sound and happy. The hoof will then be dressed and polished. The price for a barefoot trim 60$ This includes thrush treatment hoof polish is based on a sound quarter horse on an 8 week schedule. corrective trimming or overdue feet are 80$ epoxy repairs are 20$
