My name is Cheyenne Korbutt-Brown and I am a fully qualified and insured Equine Podiatrist covering most of Hampshire and Wiltshire. I have always had a passion for horses, especially their feet, which has lead me to where I am now.
I pride myself on my friendly, reliable service, and am happy to work with your Vet, Farrier and other professionals if necessary. I'm also happy to give advice to shod horse owners on how to get the very best out of their horses feet too.

“Equine Podiatry is the study and management of the equine hoof based on its anatomy and function.”
It’s not just about balancing the hoof but balancing the horse, and I’m not talking about working on both reins, but looking at the horse as a whole. Nutrition is vital for good feet as well as a healthy gut, immune system and vital organs. If any one of these is compromised, it throws the horses equilibrium off balance and the feet can suffer as a result.
As an equine podiatrist I will always assess the whole horse and not just its feet. With more and more lameness related problems being discovered, which only affect the feet as a secondary symptom, sometimes we have to look else where for answers. Some of these can include, stomach or hind gut ulcers, hormone imbalances and diseases such as Cushings (PPID) and Equine Metabolic Syndrome. By focusing on the feet alone, and not considering these contributors to hoof health, we might not see the full picture. Diagnosis and treatment of equine disease must always come from your vet.
