Umstead Farrier Service is operated by FormaHoof Certified Applicator Elise Umstead.
After graduating from Meredith Manor Equestrian Centre, Elise earned her accreditation through the IAPF and began her farrier practice in Virginia. She predominantly shoes sport horses but enjoys working in a variety of disciplines.
Elise loves the dynamic aspect of horse shoeing and the constant growth of the industry as we learn more about horses, presenting new challenges and necessitating continual learning and development.
Elise has completed the FormaHoof Certified Applicator Course where hoof care professionals are assessed to ensure their FormaHoof applications are consistent and meet FormaHoof standards.
