I bought one of these ones a few years ago Farrier Horse Hoof Stand Foot Jack Adjustable Height | eBay . It has worked great for me. I haven't used the up and down adjustment on it, because I'm not that tall and neither are my horses. It was cheaper when I bought it a few years ago, but I'd still give $70.00 for one today.

I got a Hoofjack (that is the name of the brand). Honestly, if I had it to do over, I would buy something else. It has a large footprint, so it is kind of "cumbersome". It is just "okay".

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

The Hoof Jack is nice, depending on the environment you are using it on. On flat surfaces (Rubber mats, concrete, etc) it works great. When you bring it out on wet grass, mud or uneven ground it tends to move and slip around because the bottom is flat.

For this reason, I purchased a metal stand with a round concave bottom - works great on all surfaces!

Im on my phone so I can't link right now - I got a "farrier stand" on amazon for $60, it has two heads (a cradle and a round top) and two magnets to hold your tools. Awesome hoof stand, it has really stood up to abuse. If you like I can link later today :)

Shoot I shouldn't have opened my mouth until I got that link, they've upped the price since I bought it early last year, it's just over $100 now - still free shipping though!

Amazon.com: High Country Plastics Farrier Stand Blue: Pet Supplies

That being said, I'd still highly recommend it. It's heavy, it's metal, it's clunky - which I like because the horse has a harder time tipping it over. Also I like the flat base because I can stand on it if I have to to keep it from being moved around. The height is very adjustable. The thing that surprised me when I got it was that the cradle is really fat, it's more like a curved platform so it holds the whole hoof.

Sorry it wasn't the super awesome $60 price tag though!!

EDIT: But I did end up finding it just now on other websites for $60 :) No idea bout the shipping though.

^^Ware, they are so worth it. On the extremely rare occasion that I need to trim a horse, my brother left one of his old ones over here for my Dad to use (though we really try to keep him from doing any shoeing/trimming, it's just too hard on him after his heart attack). I use it and it saves so much effort....especially on us folk that aren't used to doing it all the time and our little legs are weak as kittens LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
