Forging a link between the traditions of the past and the innovations of the present, looking to the technologies of the future, Matt Taimuty provides therapeutic and general farrier services to the Delmarva Peninsula. Continuing training and education enable him to work with veterinarians, owners, and trainers to produce the best results for each individual horse, regardless of breed or sport.
Biomechanical motion analysis, conformation study, careful balancing, and precision forge work go into every shoeing job. Horses with health issues, injuries, heavy training schedules, or special needs of any kind are given the individual attention and care needed to attain and maintain soundness.
Prompt response to thrown shoes and emergencies, and on-time, every time appointments provide the peace of mind you need to enjoy your horses and schedule your lessons, competitions, and life without worry.
From foot to forge, Matt is both a farrier and a horseman. With almost thirty years experience in shoeing almost every conceivable kind of equine, and supporting almost every conceivable discipline, he brings not only top-quality training, but also a deep and wide understanding of balance, symmetry, movement, and physical forces to each shoeing job. His personal riding and training credentials include competition at the highest levels in endurance, dressage, and eventing.
Beginning with an apprenticeship at age 17 and the Oregon State University School of Agriculture Farrier School in Corvallis, Oregon, Matt’s training and education have continued throughout the years as scientific knowledge of farriery and new technologies have developed. Matt is a Certified Journeyman Farrier, the highest certification currently available in the U.S., and is studying to complete the requirements for Fellowship in the Worshipful Company of Farriers, the British certification which is the highest awarded anywhere in the world.
