I see no reason to lie to him.

"Although I appreciate the thought, I would prefer that only my farrier trim my horse's hooves from now on. If you notice his hooves looking a little overgrown, then please, let me know, but do not take it upon yourself to do the trimming yourself again. Thank you."

Exactly, then he may start asking questions and the lie just gets bigger. Just say you are using your farrier and he is not to do it again. If he has a concern about your horse then he can discuss it with you.

Thanks, Courtney and all. I'll try to pull him in to conversation next time I run in to him.

If someone had done that to my horse 'polite' would not be part of the conversation.

I did end up switching stables, in part due to this but I had other reasons more predominant.

...and my horse just came sound today, after all this time. Yeesh.
