Farrier School

Hello everyone, I've decided to pursue a career as a farrier and I've been sorting through all of the farrier schools. There are MANY and most of them seem to say the same thing. I'm suffering from information overload! I've narrowed my choices down to about 5 or 6. Can anyone out there steer me in the right direction? Maybe recommend one or two? Thanks.

Everyone I know around went to Kentucky School for 6 months. Although I'm not positive if the main reason was because it's the closest (I never did research on those schools), but the feedback was very positive.

It would depend a lot on where you are or are willing to go. There is (or was - I don't know if it's still here or not) an excellent school here in Oklahoma. It's where my farrier went.

I live in South Florida but am willing to travel to anywhere in the lower 48 for the right school.

My farrier went to a farrier school in Oklahoma..supposedly they are one of the best. She's a fantastic farrier also...there have some been some talk of one here in texas but I've met a couple farriers out of that one and I really don't thinks its reputable because I don't thing they know half as much as mine learned in Oklahoma.

We are probably talking about the same school here. It's affiliated with OSU, I think...

Montana State University has a FANTASTIC program. My old farrier teaches most of the classes and I haven't been able to find a good one since I moved.
They have a professional course as well as one for horse owners who want to be able to trim a basic foot.

Well, it turns out the school I was thinking of really isn't affiliated with OSU, I made a bad assumption based on their name. However, they are still very well respected.
