Jeremy was born and raised on a livestock and horse farm in Maryland, NY, and learned to ride at a couple of years old. His childhood farrier encouraged him to take on the trade, and in 2007, at 16 years old, he gave it a go, becoming immediately hooked. In 2009 he attended and graduated from the Cornell Farrier Program, and started apprenticing close to home, building his business, and competing in local Farrier contests. Jeremy passed his AFA Certified test in 2011, and passed the AFA Journeyman test in 2012, as well as started competing in WCB events. In 2013 he was sent to England for the 3 month AFA Cultural Exchange, and upon returning began competing at the AFA Convention in 2014, to then make the American Farrier’s Team in 2015 and 2016. At Convention 2016 Jeremy was winner of the Capewell Cup and Reserve National Champion. He has also shod racehorses in the Caribbean multiple times, but prefers to maintain his customer list in NY shoeing dressage, hunt seat, barrel racing, pleasure, some draft, and trail horses. Fly fishing, bird hunting, hiking, and occasional trail riding take up much of his personal time shared with his now 6 year old son, family, and friends.
