C-Cross Farriers advocate for the horse and each other for a successful multi-farrier practice
A multi-farrier practice was not on Jason Critton’s radar 10 years ago when he was thumbing through the pages of the May/June issue of American Farriers Journal. In fact, it was a foreign concept.
“Reading the ‘Shoeing for a Living’ with Florida farrier James Gilchrist was the first time that I’d even heard of a multi-farrier practice in the United States,” he says. “I thought, ‘Man, that’s cool.’”
Fast forward a decade later and Critton has established a highly successful seven-member team under his family’s brand, C-Cross Farriers.
The team, based in Sedalia, Colo., consists of Jason Critton, CJF, TE; his wife Dawn Marie Critton, PhD; Jaime Venegas, CJF; Jake Woirhaye, CJF; Anthony Casso, CJF; Cord Larson, CF; and Turner Kinkaid, a first-year associate. The entire team provides hoof-care for between 800 and 850 horses. The horses and disciplines range from backyard to high-level sport horses.
On this “Shoeing for a Living” Day, Critton and his team discusses what has made them successful both in and out of the barnType your paragraph here.
