Nailing Success: Inside the Life of Trainer Josh, Farrier Brittani Halsell

Published

“No hoof, no horse,” is how the saying goes. It might sound simple, but it sums up the importance a horse’s feet play in overall well-being, and it is the farrier that has been providing this crucial aspect of horse health management for almost as long as man has been riding.

Brittani Halsell has spent years mastering the craft and has built a business working with high-performance horses. Her goal is to provide each animal athlete with a solid, balanced base, to remain healthy and reach their fullest potential.

“My favorite thing about shoeing horses is being able to problem solve on high-performing horses when something isn’t exactly right,” Halsell said. “This isn’t a science; it’s an art. I like being creative and being a voice for these athletes. I like when the trainer, the vet, and I can all work together to get everything operating at 110 percent and hopefully, winning.”

Suburban Start

Halsell’s journey began not in the country, but in a suburb of Detroit, Mich., into a family who was not involved in agriculture. Instead, Halsell was introduced to horses by a neighbor when the family moved to a more rural area when she was just nine years old.
“She raised, trained and showed hunter/jumpers and I did chores in exchange for lessons,” Halsell recalled. “During this time, I became heavily involved in 4-H and FFA, where I fell in love with cattle and specifically, dairy farming.”
