Getting new shoes tomorrow

Hey guys,

I am a new horse owner and have never had to pay to get him trimmed and shoed yet. I've been wondering how much it is going to cost. If anyone could give me a rough estimate I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

Trimmings for me are $40 a horse and fronts are $100ish as for all around is only 10 bucks more.

Prices vary from state to state but its a general idea on how much it would cost. Sometimes you can find it cheaper n sometimes....eh...you can't.

I am also in WA, but Western. Trims are about $35 to $40. Shoes run the whole gambit depending on how does your horse. I have it cost as little as $65 for fronts (which my horse will get tomorrow) to $280 for eggbars fronts. I would say that a 'normal' range for shoes on all four around here runs about $85 to $200.

I always make sure to ask before scheduling the farrier. And price does not always mean good or bad work... the last one I had I was paying $120 for fronts and he lamed my horse. The current farrier was actually able to look past my horse's color and understand that he is NOT a paint horse, but a sadddlebred and has different angles needed for comfortable movement.

Uh, I'd kill to be paying only $120 for all fours! Just fronts for my horse is $130 and that's low-mid range for my area!!! D:

Unless your horse really needs shoes, keep him barefoot. His hooves will be healthier. Don't shoe because "someone" said he needs shoes. A reputable farrier won't shoe unless there's a problem or if the owner insists.
