Becoming an Equine Lameness Specialist

What are the steps in becoming an Equine Lameness Specialist? I'm very interested in this career choice. I want to know:
1.) College-what college, degrees, etc.
2.) Salary
3.) High School Courses-classes, extracurricular, etc.
4.) Out of school experience-vet shadowing, etc.
5.) How many years of school
6.) What kind of facility to have
7.) Pros and cons
8.) Any other information.


Thanks!

The two routes you can take for this are farrier or DVM. The amount of schooling with vary on the path you take and so will the salary. The salary will also vary on your reputation and location. Well all of the questions you ask depend on the path really, and your devotion to it. I know a couple of farriers who make six figures and know a few vets that do too.
