Therapeutic and weighted shoes do not carry a warranty against loss. Horses wearing these types of shoes should be kept on dry ground, and the feet must be cleaned daily. Mud, slop, manure, and urine all cause soft hoof walls; therapeutic and weighted shoes cause more strain on the wall as well and requires more maintenance. It is the owner's responsibility to clean the feet daily and keep the horse out of mud and in a clean environment.

We can order any type of shoe for your horse. If you want something out of the norm, advance notice must be given; you will receive a price estimate at that time. Due to the enormous number of shoes and equipment available, it is impossible to stock them all.

If it is determined that veterinary assistance is needed, the client is responsible for charges accrued for that call, as well as any follow-u calls. Veterinary expenses are also the client's responsibility.

Cast shoes are an uncommon problem, and are almost always due to environmental conditions or horse activity. Usually, a shoe is pulled when the horse is in a muddy environment and is running around or catches it in a fence or with a hind foot. Poor hoof quality will also contribute to a cast shoe. If your horse unexpectedly loses a shoe, I will reset it as soon as possible. There is a charge for this service, depending on distance traveled to you and whether the shoe can be reset or if a new shoe is needed. Please check shoes daily and make an appointment for a reset before the hoof gets overlong or the shoes become loose.
