Meet Erin


Erin Dong, was born in Santa Cruz California and moved north to Portland Oregon with her family as a young girl. It was here she spent time with her grandfather who showed, owned, and bred Tennessee Walking Horses. Erin was often found cleaning stalls, taking lessons, grooming, and yes, hanging out with the farrier. It was this time and experience in her life where Erin knew then, that her passion for horses would propel her into a career working with them.

In 2009, Erin started a four year apprenticeship under an AFA Journeyman Farrier and in 2013 she passed her American Farriers Certified Exam. Today she is building her farrier business and continuing her education thru the AFA. ¬†She is currently serving the Oregon Farriers Association as secretary and working on obtaining her Journeymans’ License.

In her spare time she trains and rides her BLM mustang mare, pushing towards desired goals and strengthening their relationship.
