Had an interesting question presented to me recently.

If you were willing to move anywhere in the lower 48 states to build/rebuild a farrier business, where would you go? Presume the move is not about your affection for a particular location but rather, is intended to assure the best business opportunity you could find.

The question gave me pause to think about horse/owner/service-provider demographics data. Are these things always linear? (More horses, more service providers).

Bruce Matthews recently moved from Vermont to Florida, then quickly re-established in Texas. While he knew that the Ocala region of Florida was flush with horses, he also found that there was a plethora of farriers creating heavy competition and associated depressed fee schedules. Moving to east Texas improved the rates he could charge but perhaps offers fewer opportunities in equine numbers, hence potentially slower business growth.

So where would go and what business criteria would drive you to do so?

Cheers,
Mark

One place I really enjoyed working was the north east. CT,NY,area the farriers up there seem to get along and have a way of helping one and other. Where I live ib West TX it's cut throat, I have not one other friend in the business locally.

I honestly don't think it matters. From what I have seen it is roughly the same everywhere. Good farriers are in high demand anywhere in the country. Run of the mill farriers compete with eachother, horse owners compete for good farriers. It takes some time to establish a business anywhere no matter who you are, but I think we are in a field that is extremely tilted in our favor when it comes to supply and demand.

I've now read in about 6 different places that NC is really growing. . . like one of the only parts of the country that is. Hopefully that growth continues to include affluent people who want to keep horses. :)

I think it does matter where you go.You better have your homework done,because if you end up in not to good a spot,it can cost you.I used to think that if you have a good set of skills, then john Q public is going to find out about you.I'm not sure if I believe that anymore. There's just some places that they don't care about the quality of the job, just the price,just get em standin on iron.I am looking at moving myself here pretty quick, I'm only about 3000 miles away from the starting line.I wanted to go to the Nashville area but never heard anything encouraging about the shoein situation there.Suppose I could keep talkin with people until I hear the answer I want to hear.I'm thinkin you want to go to where there are not just horse owners but also horsemen,people that know the difference.I remember reading once about Smitty saying to shoe so the other guy has to move.Never forgot that, good piece of advice that is applicable to almost everywhere I been around

Bill, if you're looking for horsemen, you might have to try a different planet. The horsemen/women are dying off fast and being replaced by folks barely qualified to own hamsters. Although they KNOW all about horses because of the 'net.
