The First 12 Years…

Mills Horsemanship & Hoofcare has been helping horses and people since 2006; keep scrolling to see some great memories of the wonderful horses and people Andrea has been lucky to meet along the way…

Andrea has a background in natural horsemanship, and for the first 12 years of her career, she traveled around the panhandle of Nebraska and into Wyoming giving demonstrations, clinics, and lessons. She was particularly passionate about liberty training and bridleless riding, studying briefly at the Parelli Natural Horsemanship Center in Colorado.

What about the Hoofcare?

Andrea spent 10 years as a hoofcare professional. She studied barefoot trimming with the AANHCP in Missouri, but later went on to study the protocols of the Equine Lameness Prevention Organization and collaborate with Natural Balance farriers from Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado. She is no longer doing farrier work for the public; however, she can be contacted for a referral HERE.

 The Healing Herd

Andrea was fortunate enough to spend a brief time from 2015 to 2017 facilitating an equine therapy program at a detention center, using the HEAL model of Equine Facilitated Learning, which she and her co-facilitator studied in Montana.
You can learn more about HEAL and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and Learning HERE.
