Routine Shoeing and Trimming
At the New Jersey Equine Clinic we make foot care a priority and treat each horse individually. Horses present unique trimming and shoeing challenges depending upon their breed, conformation, and discipline or intended use. When appropriate, feet are trimmed routinely and shoes are reset as the horse presented. However, in some cases corrective shoeing is necessary to rebalance the horse's feet, help correct conformational flaws, or as an adjunctive therapy for musculoskeletal injuries.
Joe Rayll, farrier for New Jersey Equine Clinic, visits our campus twice weekly to maintain the feet of our hospitalized patients and our horses in the turnout center.
