    Down here, the typical price is $50 for trim, $70 for front shoes, $90 for 4 shoes. A reset is the same price and the reasoning is that the cost of the shoe is averaged over two shoeing.

    Around here you get what you pay for in shoeing. I can get the fronts "buddy" done for a case of less than $20 and it can go all the way up to $150 for a great trim and hot shoeing for all 4.

    This is one of those services that vary by region as far as cost goes. I'd call a couple vets, see if they would recommend any one, I'd also call a couple feed stores and see who they would recommend as word of mouth is STILL one of the very best ways to find a good farrier.

    Same here. Well, at my old barn when he had shoes. :O Weird that my horse's name is Beau as well.

    It was $30 for a barefoot trim, and $90 for either a trim with same shoes put back on or a trim with new shoes put on, I'm not sure which.

    Now my horse is barefoot and it's much cheaper. ;)
    Before that starts anything, I'm not one of those people who think barefoot is the only way to go. Although I like its benefits, I know there are many people (like the OP) with quite legit reasons to shoe their horses.

    It costs me $55 to get shoes on all four hooves, $30 to get front shoes, and $25 for a trim... and this from a farrier who has gone to school for it and really knows what he's doing... My farrier also teaches me a little bit about shoeing and trimming and the structure of the hoof and all every time he comes out, he also gives me training advice and sometimes rides my horses to evaluate them and tells me what I should work on more. He also spends time out here whe he's shoeing to talk and is more than a farrier; he's also a great friend to me.

    Anywhere from $75-$200ish depending on who I have shoe them and how they need to be shod.
