How to Pull A Shoe....your horse's not your own!
A ack.......We have all had that sick feeling in the pit of our tummies of going to get our trusty steed from their pasture or stall and notice that they have smeared one of their shoes sideways on the hoof, often times with the clip shoved into the white line. 
WHAT TO DO!!!  Of course we want our farrier or vet to magically appear before our eyes, but the reality is they are tied up on previous appointments and cannot drop everything to come to our rescue.
The Solution????  Master Farrier Sean Gaul and his assistant Chaise Cantrell have put together a quick informative video detailing how to pull a shoe and the tools you will need!

The Tree House Yoga Studio...
is a gem nestled in the peaceful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Columbus, North Carolina.
Each season brings a new view from the private yoga studio:  Winter opens up the eyes to the neighboring pasture with a little white barn, horses grazing and the nearby mountains.  In Spring and Summer we are enveloped in a canopy of green leaves creating a natural sanctuary with the accompaniment of birds singing and water flowing.  In Fall, before the trees surrender their leaves, we are witness to warm golds, bright yellows and vibrant reds that only this time of year brings.
Practice Yoga on YOUR Schedule!!!  Now offering Live Streaming and On-Demand Online Classes for $10  Visit our website or email Lori for details about classes offered and how to sign up!
