    Of course it can be a career. The key is to be able to build a clientele and that will vary depending on what area you are in. I think it would be great for you to take the course if you can take the time off to do it.
    If you were to decide you don't want to turn it into a career, it won't stop you from making extra money on the side. A skill you always have great use for.

    Go for it!

    You are lucky when I had my horse, one farrier had to be booked eight weeks ahead. He charged $35 for a set of shoes with triming. I failed to prebook him and my horse was in need of a shoeing, lost a shoe or something. He sent me to friend and he was my farrier until I sold my horse.. They were also Amish, so you eithier had to take the horse to them or take them to the horse. A nonAmish farrier, cost $60, and didn't do as good a job.
    Both also trained horse as well.
