The local farrier charges $35 per horse, and I get their feet trimmed roughly every 6 weeks.
The closest horseshoeing school is about 2 hours away. For a 2 day simple trim course, it's $250 plus equipment, and I bring my own horses.
I would, of course, call the local farrier if there was an emergency or something outside of just a trim, but I'm really looking to save money in the long run just by being able to trim their feet up. Any thoughts? Would it be worth dropping the money to take the classes? Anyone else do this? Just looking for some honest opinions.
