Catherine qualified as an Equine Podiatrist in 2015 and is a member of the Equine Podiatrist Association(UK). As well as trimming for Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue, Catherine works with equids from all walks of life and is passionate about giving a positive hoof care experience to all.
"As an Equine Podiatrist, I work with barefoot equines, and those making the transition to barefoot. I can remove shoes, but not replace them! My services incorporate a force-free holistic approach to hoof care, considering the equine’s diet, environment, and exercise as well as trimming. I have experience working with acute laminitis, navicular, severe trauma to the hoof capsule, conformational abnormalities, and gait abnormalities causing unusual hoof growth to name a few and have also worked with youngsters having their first trim to traumatised equines with a fear of hoof-handling.
"I am a member of the Equine Podiatry Association UK which means that I am qualified (I have a diploma in Equine Podiatry and trained with Equine Podiatry Training Ltd), insured, and carry out a minimum of 40 hours CPD every year. I am currently studying for an MSc in Equine Science with the University of Edinburgh."
