Lyle Bergeleen is coming to the Northern CA area
during Tevis to host an apprenticeship school for a few, select individuals,
some of whom are practicing shoers interested in his methodology.
He is looking for a barn and/or barns with 15 to 30 horses each.
These horses will receive the benefit of Bergy's 23 years of experience and will
only be paying $30 a head for shoes. If any of you know of a barn that may
be interested, please let me know. He would prefer a barn within 100 miles of
Auburn, but is open to other suggestions.
For those of you not familiar with Bergy, you can
check out his website at www.hooftalk.com
. Bergy has spent the past 23 years shoeing horses and perfecting his
trade. He has discovered that alot of horses are not being shod
properly. He is not a "corrective" horse shoer, since, as we all know,
when you try to "correct" one problem, you cause three others. He shoes
horses naturally in alignment with their way of going. He is currently
working on a shoe that will be specifically for endurance riders.
As part of this school, he will be looking for
horses with chronic problems that he can address and help. Bergy has
lectured at the School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison, WI, Western States
Horse Expo in Sacramento, etc. He has held clinics at universities
throughout the U.S.
If you have any questions or know of a barn that
may be interested, please e-mail to let me know. Although the shoes will
be put on by persons learning the trade, they will be supervised by Bergy at all
