Nathan is our farrier extraordinaire! After four years in the Army Nathan decided to turn his attention to horseshoeing—he’s been shoeing now for 9 years. He began apprenticing with a master farrier for 2 years, spent some time working for UC Davis Veterinary Hospital as an apprentice farrier and then set off on his own. He takes great care in setting up very specific trimming and shoeing schedules for each horse, and with all of his dedication, our herd has never been more sound!
Nathan truly enjoys spending time with the guests, be it in the saddle, in the lodge or around the fire. If you head out on the trail with him in the summertime, he may even stop the ride to pick flowers for all the ladies!
