MEET ARCADIA 

After sitting at a desk job for several years, I decided to see what other job options would give me a flexible schedule and a more enjoyable work environment. I have now been trimming and shoeing horses in Whatcom County for several years.  

 

As a dressage and trail rider, I had the horse experience under my belt. I was excited when the opportunity to attend farrier school presented itself.  I hit the road for California and told my hubby to take good care of my ponies! After returning from school, I apprenticed with a local farrier while building my business, and continue to  mentor with other farriers for ongoing education.​

 

Continuing education in farriery and other areas of the horse industry is of the utmost importance. I completed my Certified Farrier Certification through the American Farriers Association (a detailed 3-part exam) and obtain a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education every year to ensure that I can provide exceptional hoof care and handling of your horse as we work together to achieve your goals. I surround myself with other farriers from all over the country as there is always something to be learned.  If I don't have the answer, I know where to find it! I love the outdoor work environment here in the greater Bellingham area (well, except in January) and the opportunity to improve a horse's quality of life through quality hoofcare.
