farrier costs

Im just wondering what farriers cost in your area. Shoes and a trim?
Prices go from $25-50 here. The highest is getting shoes of course, but I personally like bare hooves unless they need special care.

Cheapest trim I've found is $40. Not sure what shoes cost anymore, as my gelding is barefoot, but I know my friend used to pay $75 for fronts only and $120 for a full set.

My farrier charges $35 for a trim, and $75 for shoes unless your horses needs special shoes, then it's priced accordingly. My horses shoes cost me $90.

Wow! I'm coming to your area! Oh wait... I'm a trimmer, so I'll stay here, where it's between $40-$80(don't get how they justify $80!) for a trim & around $100-120 for shoes.

$90 for a trim and front shoes. A trim on it's own is $50. I don't know what it costs for a full set of shoes.

To ride or not to ride.....What a silly question!
