Two Week Course $1800

80 hours 

Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

 

The two-week course was developed for the qualified applicant who is limited in time or money.  A good background in horses is essential in order for this course to be practical. Good health and a willingness to learn are the only other qualifications.

 

Each day will start with one hour of class in which principles and theory are presented. Approximately one chapter is covered from the text, Principles of Horseshoeing II.

Other materials are integrated as improved technological and scientific methods become available.  All students are involved in the live application of horseshoes from the very first day.

 

In the two-week course, students will apply ready-made and hand-made shoes.  They will learn basic corrective shoeing procedures.  Comparative anatomy and physiology is learned by studying freeze-dried leg specimens.  Aging horses by observing tooth eruption and wear is taught in the first week, as is maintenance of teeth.

 

The cost of the two-week course is $1500 which includes housing and the use of tools throughout the course.​​
