My name is Clive Ponsford and I have lived in Devon all my life. I haven't always been into horses it is something that I was introduced to by my wife. I guess it was one of those things you start, not knowing where it will lead. I never dreamed it would lead to a new career and obsession with the equine foot. I like to think I give a friendly face to hoofcare, my clients will tell you that "I am almost cheerful".
I believe in looking at the whole horse and not just the foot, this forms part of a talk I sometimes give on the "balance of the equine foot". I try and understand as much as I can about the equine foot and horses in general. As every part of the horse is linked you never know where the answer to a problem may lie.
I am lucky to have a large and wonderful client base who support me, and trust me with their horses. Over the years I have learned as much from my clients as they have from me.
