I’ve grown up in the business. Literally. My father is Steve Dixon, a successful journeyman farrier. My brother Keith is a farrier too. My mother Linda Mork was a trainer/coach in the hunter/jumper world. I grew up going to horse shows with Mom, shoeing clients and farrier competitions with Dad and helping out at the lesson barn we owned in Maple Ridge. I started hitting steel seriously when I hit my teens and entered my first farrier competition at 16.
In 2017 and 2019 I represented Canada as a member of the Canadian Farrier Team, competing in Stoneleigh, England and throughout the United States and Canada.
I first apprenticed with my Dad and later Iain Ritchie, another well-known and successful farrier, for several years while building up my own clientele. I continue to attend competitions, seminars and events throughout the year to stay current and further my education.
