Are you tired of farriers that don’t show up, or are difficult to get to return calls or emails?  Farrier Service Plus, run by Ward Edwards M.Sc.,APF, is currently taking a limited number of new clients, and I am dedicated to customer service.  I will return all calls and emails within 24 hours.  I prefer to schedule the next appointment at the time of the trim, and I get in touch 2 or 3 days in advance of the appointment by email or phone to remind you of your appointment.  I advocate for barefoot trimming done in a sane manner, in which the horse is trimmed to landmarks on the sole with the goal of eventually getting the horse to have a fully functional foot that is in dynamic balance with the rest of the horse’s conformation. I realise that not all horses have the ability to go barefoot, and need shoes for therapeutic reasons, and so I can also apply shoes, and use similar principles to produce a foot that functions as well as it can. I have studied the methods of many farriers and barefoot trimmers and I use the ideas and methods that I feel make the most sense when looking at the anatomy and function of the foot and the balance of the foot in regards to the whole horse. I strongly believe in client education and do my best to make sure that, if interested, the client knows what I am doing and why.  Now also accepting credit cards.

I am also offering a service of slow motion video, that allows you to study in detail the movement of your horse and/or the rider.  At 240 frames per second, the movement is 1/8 the speed of a normal video which is shot at 30 frames per second.  My rate for videoing your horse is $50 per hour, 1 hour minimum, plus travel expenses.

I service the area from Port Hope to Napanee, including Stirling, Belleville, Trenton, Campbellford, Havelock, Brighton, Madoc, Marmora, Tweed,  and Flinton.
