Why Dennis Cherry?

Why Dennis Cherry?

After shoeing horses for most of his life, Dennis Cherry has come to believe in the benefits to the horse of keeping them barefoot. He has been barehoof trimming for some years now using the specialised method of Equine Podiotherapy.

Initially trained by Andrew Bowe, the Barefoot Blacksmith ( ), Dennis then completed two years study at the Australian College of Equine Podiotherapy ( ) and was awarded the Diploma of Equine Podiotherapy.

Since seeing the amazing results achieved by Dennis, his wife Sally has become equally passionate about barehoof trimming and is now his apprentice. She has commenced studying for the Dip. Equine Podiotherapy.
