I am a stuggling beginer farrier. I am trying to get me name out there, ads in the newspaper, decal on truck, etc. People want to know who I am and I am glad to go meet them and now they are inviting me to all this horse-happening groups, which is cool, but some of them I don't want to be associated with because some people won't want to work with me because I am part of this group kinda thing. What would you do? Would you just buck up and go? They want alot of commitments, like every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday night thing! Hard because I do have a life and a family. What do you think?? Hope you can help, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place at this moment.

You didn't say what part of the country you live in? If there are horseshows in your area that is a great place to start making a name for yourself. You might just nail a loose or lost shoe on for the whole day, but you will make that person glad to meet you! You will also see all kinds of differant shoeing styles that you can learn alot from. These type people also are commited to their animals and want the best for them. Beats putting up with nothing but backyard horses! They also have the nicer barns to work in . Good Luck and keep your nails high!

Thanks Gary for the reply. Yes there are horseshows here and I am planning to go to them, but there are other like trail ride groupd and things like that and when I say "I am not sure if I can go," They give ne this "Who the heck do you think you are?" look. It kinda makes me mad and also makes me think that I am being a b****. I just don't want to get involved with groups that I do not like or I do not want to be associated with. Is this wrong?? I do have a reputation to keep up, don't I?

Working for the public means ya have to suck it up sometimes? I work some local trail rides but be warned about them- alot of people will want you to shoe their mules or bronc's because their at home farrier didn't want too? If you feel that strong about working for those other folks, just do what Nancy Reagen said, " Just say No" . Best, Gary

When you're getting established building a business the most important thing is to build a network of folks that can help you, pass on your details, or recommend you. However you need to be clear in your mind about what you want to do and what market you want to be in: short term, medium term, long term This means that sometime you just suck up to folks as you pass through on the road to having so much work you can choose who you want.

And if you are clear that there is absolutely no advantage to you or your reputation then rather then think about how you decline.

And rather than a "No I can't". Try a "I would have loved to have come but.... (insert excuse)" and don't look at all embarrassed when you politely refuse.

Be careful you don't do what I once did though when asked if I'd do a longreining clinic for a group of folks I wasn't keen on and I said "oh sorry I'm busy" and got the reply "I've not told you when yet!" :rolleyes: whoops! :rolleyes:

(I'm not sure what you mean by "trail ride groups" though because we don't have them :rolleyes:)

The better horses you will get to work on (not the most) will come from other farriers that know you. You should make every effort to meet the farriers in your area, let them know you can take new business, promise not to undercut them, let them see your work, ask to ride along someday, charge appropriately and before you know it you will be turning customers away because you are too busy.

So where are you from?

Are these groups using your services with out paying? If you discount your self you will be treated as though you are worth less. On the other hand you have some dues to pay. Strike a compromise, say you wanted to help out to get your name out, but you need to be comensated for long term comitment, as you have a business to run.
Remember there are crooks in these groups who will try to get something for nothing from the new Farrier/Vet/ Feed Stoer/etc in town.
Watch your back,
