For the past 8 years it has been a practice of mine to hire an outside
consulting firm to do a performance review on previous work I have performed.
This type of feedback is needed to continually provide my customers with,
state of the art technology, good service in a timely fashion! I will
post anyone's testimonial over time if they so desire.
All efforts are appreciated!
Ross Croghan- Won the 1999 Meadowlands Trainer's Title
"Every horse Rusty has worked on for me was sound in 48 hrs. In each case
the foot grew out and stayed very clean…. He worked on a broader area
than most. I watched the work, I watched the results, I agree with his
Craig Stein - Ohio trainer "The Black Jack Sulky Innovator"
"I've had tremendous success with Rusty. I've never seen anyone as thorough
as he is! Once Rusty patches one it's as good as healed. He is very professional
and conscientious about what he does."
Chris Englehart - New York Thoroughbred trainer
"There was no soreness to the area from cutting it away, the results were
very good. He followed up regularly to find out how the horse was doing,
which is important to me. He is very professional about what he does."
Joel Cohen - Silver Creek Farm Former Quarter Horse Congress - Cutting
& Calf Roping Champion, Reining Derby Champion.
"Rusty's as good as there is at putting feet back together. I've been
riding these horses for 35 years and didn't just fall off the turnip truck..
I can tell you who can and who can't do the job." I had a pretty high
powered cutting horse that I'd won quite a bit with. She messed up her
back foot, Rusty repaired it and we did what he said and I was able to
show her the rest of the year! I was able to take her to Fort Worth and
some other major events that I thought she was going to miss. And were
not competing for ribbons at this level- were competing for the dough."
Dr. Jim Ford, DVM - Pennsylvania
"What I know is that the guys around here swear by him. That tells you
all you need to know."
Susie Schoellkopf- SBS Farms Hunters & Jumpers
"Rusty does a great job. Every horse he's done for me has been able to
get back into the action right away."
Mark Hess- Farrier, Stable Manager Rochester, NY
"Rusty helped us a lot. We had a reining horse that had a quartercrack
that was bleeding, and we were getting her ready to go to the reining
derby. We were riding her two days after Rusty worked on her and we were
able to keep her in training."
Randy Bendis - Pennsylvania Standardbreed trainer
"I just think that there are very few people in our business that can
do what he does. He does a very meticulous job. It's his passion as much
as his business. What he tells you, you can bank on. He's a true specialist.
He knows the business, he knows his anatomy and he knows lameness."
Diane Pafk - Thoroughbred Trainer, Ontario, Canada
"Rusty did several horses for our Training Stable, most recently a 4yr.old
Thoroughbred who developed a toe crack causing lameness. As bad as I thought
it was, Rusty, as usual, assured the horse would be fine. It was! My horse
raced 8 days later and finished 3rd and won the start after! Rusty provides
an unduplicated service, a technique in harmony with anatomy and hoof
function. I'm glad I found him."
