My horse requires shoes on the fronts, when I first got him the shoes had to be reset every 4-5 days, but now we have him on steel shoes with clips and they last the 6 weeks. Cost me 90 bucks a set... stay barefoot if you can

$90? Holy smokes! Its only $50 to get brand new shoes with drill tack, and have them put on. For one of the belgians!

Farrier/trimmer fees do very greatly depending on where you are located. I know from past posts there are others who pay $50 like was mentioned and there are areas that a good price for steel fronts only, no pads or studs or such, is $100.

It does not good to compare prices here unless you are comparing with someone in the same area.

Grey, considering you are in (or moving to, but I thought you already moved) a pretty pricey area of the world it is hard to believe there is a farrier there that will work for that price.

The horses are still in Indiana. I have no clue what the costs are in VA... Guess we will find out.

Ya 90 bucks is cheaper, my farrier has been doing this for 30 years. There was one guy who quoted me 250!!!!!! Just for the fronts hahah another 50 to trim the backs!

Bourbon is barefoot behind and has shoes in front. He gets trimmed and gets new shoes every 6 weeks.

Mine are barefoot and I have a front pair of Easyboot Gloves for each of them when we ride in rough country. Works out much cheaper than shoes in the long run!

I've never been able to reset steel shoes. I get 8 weeks out of shoe job. The steel shoes are always too thin to reset.

I usually keep my horses barefoot. Only putting shoes on the roughest of work.
