My name is Rodger Pyle. I started hoof trimming out of necessity rather
than occupation. My wife and I own two beautiful Appaloosa horses that
were in bad need of quality hoof care. After going through bouts of
laminitis, navicular syndrome, thin soles underdeveloped lateral
cartilages and trying several different farriers and basically getting

I apprenticed under a natural barefoot trimmer out
of Pennsylvania, Cherie Commessier and attended classes from Penzance
Equine Educational Center taught by
Gwenyth Browning Jones Santagate.
