Hi everyone,
I am looking into three different farrier programs and I am wondering if there is anyone out there that has had any experince with any of them that could offer advice.
The first is Minnesota School of Horseshoing. I am a bit concerned about their price but could manage it if they had a good enough review.
The other two are in Montana. The one that is part of the University in Bozeman and the other is Cowtown in Miles City. The one in Miles City is Natural hoof and I like that but I am interested in what others have experinced there.
Any advice would be appriciated. Thanks
Kim

Hello Kim,
I recently asked the same type of question as you and found that the majority here will endorse only a handfull of schools. From what I have learned, rightfully so. Here is a link to the thread I posted, http://horseshoes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9103 hopefully it will help. Good luck.

Merlin Anderson at Cowtown is an excellent instructor . I know him and his work personally. Whether you go to a Natural Balance school (there are now 3 in the country) or a traditional school should depend on which type of shoeing you wish to pursue when you graduate. It is more difficult to re-learn from one style of shoeing to the other than to learn the kind you want from the get-go. I tell prospective students who are undecided between Natural Balance and traditional training to interview the veterinarians in their area and see which type of shoeing the vets are more supportive of. That way you will have their support when you get out of school,something that is very important to help develop your business and your knowledge.

My suggestion is , just what type discipline are you most interested in when it comes to horses? That would make a good starting place early in your career. Horsemanship skills hopefully are already in place because frankly, I see way too many old truck drivers and such, all of a sudden become whatabee farriers out there.:rolleyes:

NOW that is sound advice !!!!!! (good for you Gary..)

No problem with others making a career change, but owning a horse doesn't mean you have horsemanship skills warranted to be a shoer.

I see so many farriers who get hurt or have unbeliebvable problems with a horse simply because they only learned to tack on a shoe.
Somewhere along the line they missed horse handling 101.

my 2 cents worth ;)

Thanks everyone for your advice.
It has been a while since I was around horses and I plan on getting some fresh experince before starting a program anywhere... Everytime I got to a stable I usually have about 4 or 5 horses follow me around. Animal magnatism I guess... :)
I am interested in doing trimming and would like to work with police horses too so I think I need to do a bit more reading about the different styles.
I am also interested in helping lamness too.
I will keep researching an hoprfully figure it out soon...
Thank again

Kim;
Animal magnatism is a plus, but solid horse handling experience comes with watching as many different folks as you can over a lifetime and learning ALL the methods of handling horses that you can absorb.

Most of the schools will give you the same basic tool handling skills and teach you how to do a basic trim and a basic shoe job.
That is all that any school promises.

The length of time you can afford to go to school will be a definite plus.
Chris Gregory now has a course that will prepare you to pass the AFA Journeyman.He also has a number of other length courses.
His wife, Kelly and son, Cody are school instructors and having a woman teach you might make learning much easier.
She will know first hand the problems women encounter.
Their son has just given his 1rst paid clinic and Chris himself has accomplished as much in the world of farriery as any of the top shoer's. He is an awesome instructor and you will recieve as well rounded an education as you will get anywhere.
their school is in Missouri.

The farrier course at Cornell is another top notch course.
One of my friends and the newly elected President of the Vermont Farriers Association is a graduate of Cornells Farrier course.
This school is in western NY.

Which ever school you choose the one thing you need to remember is it isn't social hour. It is study study study.
Every minute you waste is a minute you will never regain.
YOU have the choice to become the best or the worst farrier. It falls on your shoulders alone.

Good luck and I hopoe to see you under a horse in the future.

my 2 cents worth :D

Hi Kim

Find a good school but more important find a good apprenticeship.

A lot of good advice on here, but sometimes I think it gets a bit unrealistic and we forget how we started out. :)

Some highly skilled and experienced farriers still lack good horsemanship skills and make a good liveing shoeing and trimming horses.

Good luck to you and welcome to the forum.

I think a person considering going to any shoeing school should be kicked by a mule, bit by a donkey and stomped by a horse before they choose. If they still choose to go to school afterwards, they will likely apply themselves.

That being said, I would like to tag onto this thread and ask if anyone can recommend something of a "continuing education" course one could attend that would not fully deplete one's funds and not be too far from west Texas? It has been 14-15 years since I went to shoeing school and many things have changed that I have not had the opportunity to learn about.
