Yes, but training doesn't happen immediately. If you have had a rescue for one week with horrible feet, the farrier needs to come out. The horse will not have been trained in one week. Are you going to risk having that horse kick, rear, bite, step on, run over, etc. the farrier? If so, I sure feel bad for your ferrier
