Our horses are unshod and are kept barefoot and trimmed by Ian Whatley
(firstname.lastname@example.org). In his capacity as a qualified instructor, Ian has run several successful courses at the farm through `The Institute of Applied Equine Podiatry`
(www.appliedequinepodiatry.org) and there more courses planned for the future too.
Jenny is at present half way through her training as an `Equine Herbalist` and wherever possible, is able to treat any minor ailments the horses may develop, herself, herbally.
Growing, drying and preparing herbs for horses here at Ash Tree Farm, will be a natural continuation of Jenny`s horticultural business in the future.
The completion of the outside ménage in 2008 has meant that it is possible for us to `bring on` young horses and also extend the work we do in rehabilitation. At present, Solomon (a handsome 3 year old coloured cob) and Finn (a 6 year old Appaloosa with unique leopard spot markings) are benefiting from this exercise school.
