Do you board? If not, is there a local stable that you could call and get some farrier's names/ph.#'s?
Also, if you are close to an Amish community, I have had my little Amish farrier for 7 years--owned horses since 1985, and been through farriers. There is another Amish farrier I used once, when I could get an appointment, who has a 6 month waiting list of show people bc he's THAT good.
Lots of people that trim their own go in farrier work and then quit in a few years bc of badly mannered backyard pets that lay on their backs and much worse. It ISN'T EVER the farrier's job to train your horse's foot manners.
Hope this helps. =D
