πŸ‘‡πŸΌ EQ Interview with Alicia 


EQ: "What is your present trimming status? "

Alicia: I am open and actively seeking new clients  

EQ: "Why or how did you start your trimming journey?" 

Alicia: Horses have always been at the heart of my life, but a career with them felt impossible. After graduate school I enjoyed several years as a scientist and an educator, but my journey in that field was not meant to continue at that point in my life. I happened to be looking for a barefoot trimmer at the same time I was facing a major career crossroads—that's when I discovered Equinextion. Lisa's encouragement empowered me to take ownership of my horse's hoof care and inspired me to support and serve others

EQ: "What is your EQ Connection?"

Alicia: I'm currently working towards my EqAT certification with Equinextion through in person trimming course and online externship. 

EQ: "About how many horses do you trim per month?"

Alicia: I trim about 3 to 10 horses a month.  It depends.

EQ: "What is your favourite thing about trimming?"  

Alicia: Trimming is a fascinating blend of art, science and intuition. It's incredibly rewarding to feel a horse's sincere appreciation and relief after a trim. I also enjoy supporting owners as they discover the many ways their horse can benefit from an enhanced natural lifestyle.

 EQ: "lf you could give owners one piece of advice, what would that be?"

Alicia: Always honour the natural essence of the horse as much as possible and be your horse's fiercest advocate, even when you must defy tradition.
