Our instructors are or have been full time professional farriers. They have years of experience running a business and supporting their families by shoeing horses. They understand and teach not just the theory of excellent shoeing but what it takes to run a successful business and comfortably support their family.
Coursework is painstakingly developed to provide the perfect balance between the theory of horseshoeing and hands on practice. In addition to learning the "how" to nail a shoe on a horse, you learn the "why". After 8 weeks you will have a grasp of the underlying anatomy, lameness and therapeutic factors that drive shoeing decisions.
Practice is a critical component to getting the maximum benefit from shoeing school. All students have the opportunity to practice beyond school hours. The forge area is open from 7am to 8pm, seven days a week. Access to the classroom video and book library is unlimited and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Students' safety and learning environment are paramount at Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School. We do not bring in rank, ill-mannered, dangerous horses for students. You cannot learn how to balance a moving foot! We are committed to providing good quality horses for you to practice your professional skills.
