Once you begin, there is no end to learning, really.
My filly has a front pigeon toe. It is slight, but there. So, I keep both fronts trimmed and beveled w the sole plane..religiously. For that effort you don't need as much knowledge and tools as you might to do all aspects of trimming. You only need a good rasp (beyond a hoof pick and such). After he is properly trimmed next by whomever, just stay on it. A farrier could show you what needs to be done for this case easily enough. That would get you started and give you a lot of time to delve into all the "rest" of particulars of trimming - if you so desired.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
