    That's cool! I know our farrier school here in Oregon is only about an hour away with a 20 wk course, 10 wk internship and when you complete that you get certified through I think it was called the American farrier association or something along those lines. I would so do it, it's just biting the bullet and paying upfront all the money!

    It is hard work! You work outside in the heat and the cold, and you won't start out at the cushy barns, you will start out with the backyard horses with not a flat hard surface in site.

    You might check with a farrier you know and see what the market is where you live, or how it is where you want to relocate.

    Good luck I think there needs to be more good farriers, I think it could be rewarding too.

    I am interested about that too.
    I was wondering if anybody has attended any of these online courses ...
    I can't move away from Italy because of my horses so I can just have a distance course, if it's done well :)
    I already graduated in Animal Biology and attended Equine Nutrition course too at University of Edinburgh, and I live between horses since I was a teenager.
    So, I would like to have another title for my CV to work with horses.
    What are the best and famous University for horses?
    What do you think about that?

    Olds College in Alberta has some online courses. I know this because I am looking into going to their 2 year Horsemanship class.

    How about an online veterinary technology degree? You get a local vet to work with you on hands on stuff and do the book stuff online. It is accredited.

    A business degree would be good regardless if you get into a horse business or not, and really could help you manage your own business in the long run if you become a farrier/trainer/instructor.
