New Mexico has certified farriers who excel from basic hoof care to problem hooves.The terrain in New Mexico can be challenging on your equine’s feet. The shoe the farrier chooses may be handmade or a ready-made “keg-shoe.” While the type of shoe may not matter, proper fitting to the hoof does. Keep your horse’s feet in top condition by contacting a farrier near you.
A New Mexico farrier job is not like any other.It is physically, mentally and emotionally hard. A competent farrier must possess skill developed from above average training and extensive practical experience in anatomy, physiology, pathology, conformation and biomechanics of the horse. They must have in-depth knowledge of the horse’s foot, business concerns, horse and people relationships, as well as metal forging technology. This is how they maintain relationships and integrity in the horse community.
