So. I am one of these people. I would love to some day learn to trim on my own, and ideally take a class on it some day but I don't think they offer those here. I'm hoping maybe the farrier that does Clementine's hooves could help me out. It would save quite a bit of money to do my own trims unless there's a major issue that needs a farrier.
Before we start, I know that trimming is serious business. If you do it wrong, you can seriously screw things up. I would never even start trimming without a farrier present to make sure I'm doing it right the first few times at least, and I plan to read up and watch as much as I can before even THINKING about trying - and everyone else should, too! I'd much rather read up as much as I can, watch videos, watch my farrier and have him explain what he's doing to me, and be supervised and whatnot before giving it a shot.
For someone who has never trimmed before? What's a good place to start looking? What are some good websites, some good videos to watch? How did you learn to trim, and is there a good person online to learn from? Tips of the trade? Anything, really! I'd love to learn as much as I can before talking to the farrier!
