Welcome to the Website of Pete Rosciglione
Pete Rosciglione is a professional farrier located just west of St. Louis in Marthasville, MO. Taking a holistic approach along with having a perceptive eye for even the most subtle details that can help improve a horse’s performance has greatly impacted his success as a farrier. An adept competitor himself, Pete knows how important it is to keep your equine athlete performing to the best of their ability.
Pete mainly services the areas of Wildwood, New Melle, Washington and Wentzville, while also traveling out of state for certain clients or horse shows. He works primarily on performance horses including hunter/jumpers, dressage, and eventers among others, while also including pathological shoeing. He has extensive experience with laminitis, hoof wall rebuilds, and soft tissue injuries among many others with a specialty in lacing quarter cracks. His philosophy is to keep things as simple as possible, take what works, use it, and get rid of everything else, while keeping in mind that just because something helped one horse does not guarantee those same results on another. He places great emphasis on the trim as that is the most important aspect of the shoeing process, followed by a shoe which is fit full and long enough to support the hoof capsule as well as the limb throughout the shoeing term. He is a member of the American Association of Professional Farriers and is also a big proponent of continuing education whether it is through seminars or by simply talking to other farriers or vets to share opinions.
While he is very thankful to all of his clients for giving him the opportunity to work on their horses, there are a few Pete has worked on that have achieved great success and he wanted them to be noticed for their talent.
