Our Experienced Farriers Have Got You Covered

You know how tough it's been to get quality, reliable farrier service for your horses, no matter if their job is barrel racing, cutting, reining, trail riding, dressage, eventing or simply a backyard pet. You've had some bad experiences and you can't seem to find someone dedicated to the trade, let alone having great customer service. Maybe your horse is a bit agitated by farriers, or having their hooves handled, or maybe he's not broke yet, or maybe your horse has perfect manners. Well, now you don't have to worry about it. We'll be there on time, every time. You can count on it.

Why not try us out?

We're Kyle and Kristie Carlson and we own and operate Foundation Hoof Care Farrier Services. We've worked in the equine industry for 20 years and have been horse owners for a lot longer than that. We're really involved in the sport horse and pleasure horse community and we love horses. We take equine health very seriously, especially hoof health, so you can rest assured that we'll treat your horses as if they were part of our family herd.

We are proudly affiliated with the American Farrier Association (AFA), Equine Lameness Prevention Organization (E.L.P,O), American Association of Professional Farriers (AAPF/IAPF), Texas Professional Farrier Association (TPFA), and Southern Farrier Association (SFA).

Give us a call anytime and we'll answer your questions.

It's helpful for me to know the following:


  • How you found us and why you want me to work on your horses.
  • Number and type of horses, and whether they need trimming, shoeing or both.
  • What are the horse's jobs - if applicable.
  • Your location, address and contact info.
  • Your willingness to establish a regular service schedule.
  • Will your horses 'stand' or are there any known behavioural issues?
  • I'll explain our pay rates and our expectations of payment types and schedule.
  • Payment schedules and even pre-paid program discounts are available for regular clients with a solid payment history.
  • Permission to humanely discipline, if required, to keep the animal and myself safe.

What Our Clients Say

  • "We wouldn’t trust any other farrier with our horses. Kyle has worked really hard on helping us get our little girls roping horse as sound as possible! He’s very knowledgeable in all areas of hoof care. He genuinely cares about our horses. I also appreciate the fact that he goes the extra mile and invests in his business and takes time away from his family to attend clinics and seminars to gain more knowledge!"
