    My farrier went to an extensive school. He had to shoe MANY horses of all breeds and sizes before he could graduate. He then apprenticed with a popular farrier in our area. He's GREAT.

    My farrier would probably teach me but I prefer her to do it. The other farriers Hunter had before I got him really screwed up his feet, so bad that his front legs were twisting to compensate. They are totally straight now, I wouldn't want to take the chance of causing him a setback.

    My friend did her own horse, with tips from the neighboring farrier (who used to trim Hunter) and she cut them so short her horse had a hard time walking.

    Oklahoma has the best farrier school in the nation and horses hooves are pretty much the same no matter what breed, riding style, or purpose. Holding a job without an education sounds redneck!
